The Co-operative Group is to recruit 800 new apprentices this year, twice as many as in 2011, to be based in one of its businesses, which range from food and pharmacy to farming and funerals.


The firm's £9 million apprenticeship academy is on track to provide 2,000 places for young people by 2014, it has been announced.
