West Lothian Courier - - News - Courier re­porter

West Loth­ian Col­lege has an­nounced a part­ner­ship with a lead­ing bak­ery.

Thirty em­ploy­ees aged 16 to 24 will un­der­take a Mod­ern Ap­pren­tice­ship in retail with Greggs.

This course, funded by Skills De­vel­op­ment Scot­land, will see learn­ers de­velop knowl­edge, skills and qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

The De­vel­op­ing the Young Work­force strat­egy aims to bridge the gap be­tween ed­u­ca­tion and em­ploy­ers by pro­vid­ing young peo­ple with the right ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence to get into ful­fill­ing jobs and ca­reers.

Diane Mitchell, head of Work­force De­vel­op­ment, said: “West Loth­ian Col­lege is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing Greggs to de­velop its young work­force.

“We are de­lighted to be the only col­lege in Scot­land to be work­ing with this im­por­tant part­ner and this new con­tract un­der­lines West Loth­ian Col­lege’s po­si­tion as a na­tional train­ing provider.

“It is fan­tas­tic that Greggs is com­mit­ted to de­vel­op­ing its young work­force, and pro­vid­ing its staff with train­ing and pro­gres­sion op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
