After Business Secretary Vince Cable announced that the Government plans to increase the annual funding of apprenticeships to £1.4billion, a survey has indicated that employers find apprentices worth more to their businesses than university graduates.


City & Guilds, one of the most prominent vocational education organisations in the UK, surveyed 500 employers, half of which had used on-the-job training. Of those that had hired apprentices, 52% claimed they proved better value than graduates.


Dr. Cable announced the increase in apprenticeship funding by stating that the creation of a new generation of highly skilled workers will be crucial to sustainable economic growth while “reinforcing the message to business and young people that apprenticeships are a first-class way to start a career.” The announcement by the business secretary is part of the government’s wider commitment for apprenticeships to acquire the same level of prestige as University degrees.


Mark Woodhead, Chairman of the British Cleaning Council, said: “Facilities


management is an increasingly demanding sector, and apprenticeships are a great way for firms to benefit from the energy and enthusiasm of new workers while they acquire the skills they will need in their careers. Our member organisation, Asset Skills, have just released details of their level 3 facilities management apprenticeship, with events to mark the launch currently taking place all over the country- check their website for further information about getting involved.”

The smooth walls and graffiti-proof paint of today’s public washrooms have helped to eliminate the problem of toilet graffiti.


This form of criminal damage was once a constant headache for washroom providers, particularly since the more obscene messages needed to be removed immediately.


But not all toilet graffiti was offensive. In fact some washroom users who felt compelled to comment on their state of mind could even be considered the “bloggers” of yesterday.


So now that the graffiti problem has abated somewhat, perhaps we can have a chuckle at some of the humorous graffiti of the past.


These are some of the graffiti dialogues that have been seen on the walls of Britain’s gents’ washrooms over the years.
