Earlier this year, the council’s cabinet welcomed the introduction of an apprenticeship scheme.


Trough the scheme, apprentices will receive a mixture of on the job training and the opportunity to work towards nationally recognised qualifications.


Rose Campbell, apprentice in the Regeneration team, said: “At the end of this I will gain a nationally


recognised qualification and experience of working full time in a professional organisation. I’m now a working mum gaining further education.”


Mark Holliday, apprentice in the Housing Service, continued: “Te experience of this Apprenticeship and gaining work experience with the Council will mean that after my work placement concludes, I can pursue a career rather than just a job.”


Te council has worked with Job Centre Plus and


West Herts College to recruit registered unemployed young people on 12 month fixed term contracts. Te scheme is also benefitting the local voluntary sector.


Of the 15 apprentices, one is based at the Business


Advice Line and a further three are hosted by local voluntary organisations.
