Applications are now being taken for Flintshire County Council apprenticeship programme.

A number of apprentices are recruited each year by the council who go on to develop professional skills as they start in their careers.

Flintshire council has a long established and award winning apprenticeship programme.

Each year a number of new trainees are taken on across a wide range of disciplines, such as business and administration, IT, construction trades, vehicle maintenance and mechanics.

Apprentices usually attend college one day a week to gain industry recognised qualifications while gaining valuable experience working for the council and earning a salary.

Last month the council launched a new Apprenticeships Hub flintshire.gov.uk/Apprenticeships provides a central source of information for people who are keen to build their knowledge and skills through learning a new job, achieving qualifications and earning money, all at the same time.

Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, Councillor Ian Roberts, said:

“Our apprenticeship scheme is seen as best practice and sector-leading in its approach. This can be seen in our results.”

“95% of those who start an apprenticeship with Flintshire get a positive outcome. ”

“75% get jobs with the Council, 15% go on to employment outside of the Council and 5% use the qualifications they gain to access university.”

“It’s a win win situation.  The Council benefits from an enrichment of new ideas and energy and in return apprentices get great development and a firm start to their career.   Some who have started as an apprentice are now service managers.”
