In government Vince Cable and the Liberal Democrats have helped businesses create more than two million apprenticeships 2010.

We want to go further in the next Parliament but will do so in a way that is fair.

Left to their own devices the Conservatives will slash support for young families.

Only the Liberal Democrats will deliver a stronger economy and a fairer society, creating opportunity for everyone.
