Four new ap­pren­tices are sought

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

ARGYLL Com­mu­nity Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion is in­vest­ing in the fu­ture of its work­force by of­fer­ing three paid mod­ern ap­pren­tice va­can­cies to young peo­ple across Argyll.

The four-year ap­pren­tice­ships give can­di­dates the chance to ob­tain a recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tion, as well as gain valu­able work ex­pe­ri­ence and be paid.

Ap­pren­tice­ships are avail­able in three dif­fer­ent ar­eas: hous­ing and neigh­bour­hood ser­vices (which could be based any­where in Argyll), con­struc­tion and tech­ni­cal (based in Lochgilp­head) and cor­po­rate ser­vices based in He­lens­burgh.

Alas­tair MacGre­gor, ACHA chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: ‘Not all school-leavers want to go to col­lege or univer­sity and even new grad­u­ates can find it hard get­ting a job with­out work-based train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘ We’re of­fer­ing a four-year ap­pren­tice­ship to three young peo­ple that will lead to a na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tion, as well as the op­por­tu­nity to gain work ex­pe­ri­ence and trans­fer­able skills. Our ap­pren­tices will earn as they learn.’

The new ap­pren­tices will spend at least 10 per cent of their time work­ing to­wards ap­pren­tice­ship ac­cred­i­ta­tion and the rest of the time with their team, do­ing a real job.
