The Leader of the Council – Regeneration Cabinet Member – Minutes – 23 February 2012

17  (17) APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME – The Head of Regeneration and Planning submitted a report seeking approval to establish the apprenticeship programme which included the creation of 40 new apprenticeship posts within North Lincolnshire.

It was explained how apprenticeships could help all services across the council by offering a route to harness fresh new talent, and prepare people to work in roles in the private sector as the economy grew through large development schemes such as the South Humber Gateway.

Apprenticeships offered people the practical skills and qualifications to support public and private needs and the mixture of on and off job learning ensured they learnt the skills that worked best for the local economy.

Resolved – That the proposal to create the 40 Apprenticeship posts outlined in appendix one to the report be approved.
