Harry Hockaday welcomed Frances O’Grady of the TUC to Unity’s Head Office on Thursday 20th February 2014. Employers and apprentices were recognised for their commitment to developing skills and promoting learning in the ceramics industry. Frances O’Grady, General Secretary of the TUC, presented a total of 22 apprentices with certificates at the event. She said ‘I am particularly impressed with the work Unity continues to do in stressing the importance of workplace learning. I am a big fan of apprenticeships, not just because of all the things we know about vocation training, but because for me they say something very important about the values we hold as a country. Its about valuing young people’.
