9:39am Thursday 28th February 2013 in News
THE achievements of future highways engineers, accountants and office managers for Lancashire County Council were recognised at a special event at county hall.
The celebration was hosted by County Coun Michael Devaney, vice-chairman of the authority, which has supported more than 1,200 apprentices since 2006.
The council is to invest £10m to support 14 to 24-year-olds across Lancashire in work experience and apprenticeship opportunities in the public and private sectors.
County Coun Devaney said: “Apprentices are the future of the council.
“Through their experience and on-the-job training, they learn specialist skills that equip them for a number of roles.”
