Letter: Too old to train?

For the record, I believe I’m correct in saying that if one is past your teens, then one is too old to become an apprentice. It’s about time the government of the day knew it.

Once upon a time, with the king pin of local firms such as APV and Edwards High Vacuum, it was possible to offer training for all those males/females who wished to train up as traineeships for a three or five year term.

It’s almost as if the government of the day are stating that once anyone gets past their teens they are too old to train.
