CORNWALL COUNCIL EXCELS WITH HELP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
5 July 2012
Cornwall Council is showing imagination and innovation in its approach to helping young people in further and higher education – and with apprenticeships.
At the beginning of this year it introduced a bursary scheme to help Cornwall students in further education, Cornwall EMA (Education and Cornwall 27 January 2012) . Now it is proposing to give grants towards living and studying at university to Cornwall: see here (New deal for young people in Cornwall 5 July 2012). It is also looking to create two hundred apprenticeships.
The Tory-led council is to be thoroughly congratulated on its efforts to help the young people of Cornwall engage with their ambitions and futures – efforts which will help mitigate the EMA and tuition fees policies of the Tory Libdem government.
