Prime Minister welcomes announcements of 16,000 new apprenticeships

Morrisons says it will train 9,000 apprentices over the next five years; and Premier Inn and Costa Coffee owner Whitbread plan 6,000 by 2020.

There were also commitments from National Grid and Dairy Crest.

The PM promised three million new apprentices under a Tory government.

Mr Cameron, who launched the Costa Coffee apprenticeship scheme, said: "We want apprenticeships to be level-pegging with a university degree giving millions more people the dignity of work and a regular pay packet.

"We've already created 2.2 million apprenticeships since 2010 but a future Conservative government is committed to opening up three million more high quality apprenticeships - to help strengthen our economy and communities and give millions more people financial security."
