Ed Miliband pledges to guarantee apprenticeships

Labour would guarantee apprenticeships for every school leaver in England who "gets the grades" by 2020, Ed Miliband has said.

The pledge comes as Mr Miliband set out his party's business policies for the general election.

He argued better training and higher wages were key to boosting productivity.

Tory MP Grant Shapps said his party had pledged to cap benefits further to fund three million apprenticeships.

Ben Wright reports.
