Cuts 'will undo' apprenticeship work, training body says

The main body providing apprenticeships in Wales is warning that budget cuts by the Welsh government will have a "massively de-stabilising effect" on the programmes.

National Training Federation Wales said funding will drop from £105m this year to £74m in 2015/16.

Ministers are giving priority to apprentices aged 16 to 24 and to higher level apprenticeships.

Around half of apprentices are aged over 25 years old.

BBC Wales education correspondent Arwyn Jones reports.
