Roll-out for Welsh apprenticeship scheme

The apprenticeship programme for the National Assembly for Wales is to be rolled out following a successful pilot. 

Four young people took part last year, working across departments including human resources, translation, facilities management, and assembly member support. They also achieved an NVQ in Business Administration. 

The Assembly’s presiding officer, Rosemary Butler AM said: “With youth unemployment running at such a high level in the current economic climate, we should all do everything we can to try to offer some young people, from a diverse range of backgrounds, the opportunity to develop their skills through work opportunities. 

“The first cohort of apprentices has proved an excellent addition to our teams across the organisation and the National Assembly now wants to offer the same opportunity to more young people.” 

Applications for the next cohort of the scheme can be made here

25/10/2017Take a moment to celebrate

Devolution, restructuring and widespread service reform: from a journalist’s perspective, it’s never been a more exciting time to report on the public sector. That’s why I could not be more thrilled to be taking over the reins at PSE at this key juncture.
