Young people have been given the chance to learn from apprentices working with Bucks County Council (BCC) this week.

Activities held as part of Work Wise Week, running from February 4 to 8, gave young people a chance to see the council’s 33 apprentices in action and hear more about the benefits of combining training with a real job.

A dozen young people were able to spend a morning shadowing an apprentice.

Council leader Martin Tett said: “The apprenticeship scheme gives young people the chance to gain real employment experience, obtain some real training and have real support towards a nationally recognised qualification.”

Other sessions organised this week included an interview workshop, as well as drop-ins for IT skills assessment, setting up a business, and for using the new Universal Jobmatch search system.
