Apprentice takes on new Co-Operative funeral scheme

A man from Nottinghamshire is one of the first people to take advantage of the UK's first funeral apprenticeships.

Former nurse Craig Johnson-Slack, from Mansfield, said: "Being able to offer people compassion at their worst time felt like something I was really good at."

The Co-Operative have 800 places for people wanting to gain an NVQ 2 qualification in the funeral industry.
