    Dunk v George Waller and Son [1970] 2 All ER 630 CA (0 other reports)

In Dunk v George Waller and Son [1970] 2 All ER 630 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the purpose of an apprenticeship agreement is for the apprentice to receive training in order to obtain better employment, and if the employer terminates the agreement and deprives the apprentice of the training, the apprentice is entitled to earnings under the agreement for the remainder of the apprenticeship and damages for future loss of earnings and prospects.

Dunk entered into a four-year apprenticeship under which he agreed to work and obey orders and the employer agreed to train him as an engineering technician.
