Apprenticeships & Trainee Opportunities
The council intends to help you learn new skills and develop tour talents and abilities to the full. This programme also consists of work based training and qualifications relevant to the work. There are also many organisations that can help you find your career. We will be offering a variety of apprenticeship opportunities at different times during the year.
