UK – The Queen rejects Government’s apprenticeship programme

Buckingham Palace was approached by ministers keen for Royal estates to hire young people on a Government-backed programme.

But the Queen will instead keep her own apprenticeships for chefs, footmen and housemaids, according to The Times.

The response was revealed in a Freedom of Information request about the Apprenticeships Bill, which was in its early stages during Gordon Brown’s premiership.

The Act was designed to allow millions of pounds to be given to private companies, such as McDonald’s, Barclays and Vodafone, to offer apprenticeships in response to rising youth unemployment and fears that standards were falling.
