The Chief Executive of Flintshire County Council, Colin Everett welcomed new Council apprentices attending a staff induction course at Coleg Cambria, Northop Campus. Around 50 apprentices attended the two day event, and took part in a ‘Stock Market Challenge’ demonstrating impressive analytical techniques and team working skills. Each year a number of apprentices are recruited to work in departments across the Council. The apprentices usually attend Coleg Cambria on a day release basis over two - three years whilst receiving training and assessment in the workplace. Apprenticeships give people of all ages the opportunity to gain qualifications whilst building their practical skills and experience in the workplace. Colin Everett, Chief Executive said: “The development of apprenticeships is a key priority for the Council and I am delighted to welcome the councils new apprentices. “As a Council we want to continue to provide opportunities for people of all ages to gain qualifications whilst building practical skills and experience in the workplace. “We are very proud of the Flintshire apprentice scheme and our partnership work with Coleg Cambria.” Photo caption: Chief Executive Colin Everett with this years trainees.
