'Apprentice plan must be monitored' SCHEME.

A NEW initiative to help unemployed apprentices is open to abuse, the Technical Engineering and Electrical Union said yesterday.

Employment Minister Mary Coughlan revealed plans to help reduce the unemployment crisis among trainees in the construction industry.

The scheme only makes provision for 500 apprentices out of approximately 3,000 currently redundant.

A spokesman for the union said: "It will be essential that social partnership arrangements are put in place to monitor the scheme and ensure resources are used solely for their intended of use of assisting apprentices to complete their training."
