National Apprenticeship Week

6 February 2020

To mark National Apprenticeship Week (3 to 9 February 2020) our Cabinet Member for Council Services, Councillor Angelique Foster, has been out to meet apprentice road worker Josh Neal at his depot at Chesterfield. Josh joined the council in September 2019 on an 18 month long apprenticeship


Josh Neil with Councillor Angelique FosterCouncillor Foster said:

“Over the past 3 years we’ve taken on over nearly 300 apprentices in a wide range of different occupations. It has been great to be able to give so many young people an opportunity to get on the career ladder.

“Apprenticeships offer a real chance to get hands on experience and valuable qualifications at the same time and I’d recommend them to anyone wanting to get on in life.”

We’ll be advertising a range of different apprenticeships later this year. If you or someone you know might be interested in an apprenticeship, you can find out more about apprenticeships with us and sign up to receive an email when new apprenticeships are available.
