Role Of Apprentices Is Celebrated

Posted by | 3rd June 2015 | Apprenticeship News, Uncategorized

Scottish Apprenticeship Week celebrates the opportunities modern apprenticeships bring to businesses, young people, and the economy.

The Inverclyde housing association currently employs an information technology modern apprentice, two joiner apprentices, who were recruited via the Adopt an Apprentice scheme, and a housing trainee through the PATH (Scotland) organisation.

Chris McEleny, chairman of the River Clyde Homes personnel committee, said: “It was great to meet and talk firsthand to our apprentices to learn more about how they are enjoying the River Clyde Homes experience. Providing quality jobs and opportunities to people in the community that we serve is very important to River Clyde Homes and, as a former apprentice, I’m always happy to support our next generation of apprentices.”

Maureen Gimby, head of organisational change at River Clyde Homes, said: “We are happy to have the opportunity to employ apprentices. Each one brings their individual talent and skills with them and they are a great benefit to River Clyde Homes. We work with our partners at Inverclyde Community Development Trust, Construction Industry Training Board and PATH Scotland to recruit our modern apprentices and to ensure that we maximise opportunities in Inverclyde, for example through community benefit clauses in our contracts. Each apprentice has a comprehensive training and development programme to ensure that they get the most from their apprenticeship.”
