Apprentices allow us as a local authority to recruit new talent who are keen to learn and enable individuals to develop professional skills and gain valuable experience while earning a wage and working towards an accredited qualification.
They can be in a wide range of occupations, including:
- Business Administration
- Customer Service
- Project Management
Since the apprenticeship programme was launched, the council has successfully supported 116 apprentices – many of whom have since gone on to gain employment with the local authority.
We are committed to supporting people of all ages to develop their skills by creating apprenticeship opportunities wherever possible and developing our workforce for the future.
One thing I really enjoy about the apprenticeship is the opportunity to learn new management skills and knowledge.
I know that what I have learnt during the apprenticeship will be invaluable to my future career.Lauren Lovelock, Business Support Apprentice
