A UK firm that fixes smartphones is calling for an official device repair apprenticeship to be introduced.
TMT First, which introduced its own apprenticeship after struggling to find staff, points out there is no industry training standard.

By contrast, there are 33 million cars on UK roads – and mechanics train on nationally recognised apprenticeships.
