A degree of development for council employees
Qualification chance for workers
Twe n t y - f o u r N o r t h Lanarkshire Council staff have embarked on a range of degree programmes including business management, software development and construction and the built environment.
The programme offers students a high level of academic and industry accreditation along with experience in the workplace.
Fiona Whittaker, head of business organisational and people solutions, said: “The new Graduate Apprenticeship programme is part of our Workforce for the Future strategy and to help deliver the council’s objective of improving our resource base.
“At the moment we are offering this development opportunity to our employees and we are working in partnership with the University of Strathclyde, University of the West of Scotland and Glasgow Caledonian University.
“The programme is currently focused on staff who require a qualification or are actively seeking to progress their career within the council.
“We hope to be able to open the programme up to other people in North Lanarkshire in the coming months.”
