This briefing paper accompanies an event being jointly hosted by CLES and Manchester City Council on Friday 4 November 2011, looking at the local economic value of apprenticeships. This paper contextualises the event by exploring the key findings and policy implications of the research into the benefits of the MPiC scheme; and the role of procurement and the place steward drive of an innovative local authority, to enable these benefits to happen.
