THE North Lanarkshire’s Working campaign has said that the opportunities presented by apprenticeships are too good to miss, as the campaign announced that new vocational training and modern apprenticeship opportunities are available; encouraging young people across North Lanarkshire are being encouraged to take advantage of them.

North Lanarkshire's Working is encouraging school-leavers aged between 16 and 19 to consider applying for the vocational training and modern apprenticeship opportunities which will begin this summer. These positions offer young people the chance to develop a solid foundation in vocational skills which can help lead them to a long-term career.

Over 70 opportunities are available with North Lanarkshire Council in sectors such as horticulture, customer service, health and safety and accounting to name but a few, with all of the opportunities currently advertised on the MyJobScotland website, with young people able to apply online for the vacancies until Friday 31st May.

Caitriona McAuley, Economic Development Manager at North Lanarkshire Council said: “Vocational training and modern apprenticeships are a proven way for young people to start on their career path.

“Successful applicants will be offered a full-time, paid position and have the chance to work towards a qualification either by attending college for one day a week or through on-the-job training.

“Apprenticeships vary in length depending on which training route has been taken, this means that the young people will receive between one and four years of work experience, in addition to gaining a nationally recognised qualification. Given the competitive nature of the job market, the experience gained will definitely go a long way to helping them stand out from other candidates.”

To find out more about the vocational training and modern apprenticeship opportunities at North Lanarkshire Council visit www.myjobscotland.gov.uk before Friday 31st May 2013.
