Apprenticeships are the future in Cambridgeshire where the county council is looking to hire even more young people.

The Council beat its own target of employing more than 50 apprentices and this year the authority, with partners, hope to employ a further 75.

Services across Cambridgeshire County Council are working with partner organisations to take on more apprentices.

Cambridgeshire County Council Leader Martin Curtis, said: “Cambridgeshire County Council is doing its bit by supporting apprentices and giving them their first step on the career ladder. We know that many local firms and businesses are also helping youngsters gain apprenticeships which are vital for the continuing prosperity and economic success of the County.”

As part of National Apprentice Week Chief Executive Mark Lloyd has been visiting some of those who have already been employed by the authority.

The week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

The objectives of the week are to increase awareness, understanding and demand for apprenticeships, celebrate apprenticeship talent, skills, achievements and successes and promote all apprenticeship levels and progression routes, including traineeship.
