Apprentice scheme to be showcased

A DERBYSHIRE County Council drive to create 700 apprenticeships is being showcased for its vision at national level.

The council is creating 700 apprenticeships over the next four years – 500 within the authority and 200 in private industry.

The programme is being showcased at The Future of Apprenticeships conference in London this week.

Kevin Parkinson, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration, has been invited to make a presentation telling the Derbyshire story at the conference.
