Marking Scottish Apprenticeship Week

Posted by | 20th May 2015 | Apprenticeship News, Uncategorized

Four Angus apprentices are being held up by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) as great examples of the benefits of Modern Apprenticeship Training.

The youngsters have spoken about their apprenticeship experience as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, which runs until May 22

The SDS campaign is also highlighting the benefits apprenticeships bring to employers and the local economy, as well as individuals.

SDS Chief Executive Damien Yeates said: “Modern Apprenticeships work for employers of all sizes, from family firms to global companies.”

Trainee engineers Kayleigh Steele, Jo Milne, Mollie Sheasby and Carys Reid are part of a group of hundreds of apprentices across the country who are promoting Scottish Apprenticeship Week. They spend their week at Angus Training Group in Arbroath, learning milling, turning, fitting and assembly techniques.

Carys (17), who is from Brechin, explained: “I think what I have found really good is there is always a lot of support when you are an apprentice and people are very willing to help you,”

Damien said: “Kayleigh, Jo, Mollie and Carys and their employers are great examples of the benefits of the Modern Apprenticeship programme. They highlight the value of investing in skills for people and businesses.”
