During her visit to SPR Trailers in Walton Avenue, Dr Coffey was shown round by managing director, Simon Rivers, and met apprentices Luke Fisher and Callum Gooderham.

She said: “As part of our long-term economic plan to create more private-sector jobs the Government is making the provision of apprenticeships a top priority.

“The two apprentices at SPR are part-funded by the Coastal Communities Fund provided by the Government and administered through Suffolk County Council. Earning while you learn was a very attractive proposition to Luke and Callum and I would encourage others who are starting out in employment or looking to re-train to consider an apprenticeship.”
