BISHOP of Durham The Right Reverend Paul Butler swapped the pulpit for the factory floor to mark the start of Apprenticeship Week.

The Bishop took on the role of an engineering apprentice for a day with North East Chamber of Commerce member IK-UK.

“What I will take away from this experience is what an impressive bunch the apprentices are,” he said.

“All have demonstrated a real knowledge of their jobs and cope admirably with quite a high level of responsibility.”
