SIR - My grandson, who is just completing a BTEC National Diploma in Children's Care, Learning and Development at North Devon College and about to take a gap year to fund University, recently wrote to 12 nursery schools in the area inquiring if they had vacancies.He enclosed his C.V and a first class stamped addressed envelope with all applications, but not one establishment had the courtesy to reply.I appreciate they probably have many inquiries, but a response would have taken minutes and cost them nothing. I could "name and shame" these nurseries but perhaps if they read this letter they may stop and think "That was us - we should have responded."It's difficult enough for those who want to work and better themselves to find employment, but employers need to do more to encourage our younger people.My grandson is a quiet, well behaved young man and would be an asset to any employer.M.Johns, Bideford
