Push For Local Apprenticeships
Posted by Administrator : Monday 11th March 2013
INVESTING IN THE LOCAL WORKFORCE. The Durham council and government have tried many initiatives over the years, one being local apprenticeships. We believe that local and trusted apprenticeship schemes in our community would be welcomed with open hands. The problem is so many local businesses simply do not know about them or understand the details of them.
Local education centres, community centres and the local council often hold apprenticeship open days and open evenings to help bring together local young people and young businesses. These events will provide a wide range of information for both local businesses and local youngsters on how to get them on the working ladder.
