  • If it costs an average of £175,000 to recruit and train a single graduate, whilst high street firms don't pay for the vocational stage and necessarily for marketing, the idea that scrapping the minimum wage will result in more training contracts seems absurd given that the cost of actually training a trainee which is beyond their salary.

    The Accutrainee scheme still needs to prove its worth but ideas like this and Work Based Learning need to be used to address the lack of training contracts not scrapping the minimum salary which will just mean that those training contracts are the preserve of those who can afford it i.e. haven't paid for GDL/LPC or get financial help after that!
