Making apprenticeships work for young women

Young women are being locked out of the working world by apprenticeships which fail to support them, warns a new report from the Young Women's Trust.

To mark the start of National Apprenticeship Week, the London-based charity is calling for the Government to act to ensure 16-30 year old women receive a fairer deal within male-dominated sectors.  

The report, Making Apprenticeships Work for Young Women finds that extreme gender segregation remains a major problem.

Mark Gale from the Young Women's Trust and former apprentice, Kerri Leung-Sykes has been speaking to London Live News.
