This summer Welsh Government is helping to support 1,000 brand new apprenticeship vacancies for people of all ages across Wales.
Mike Hedges AM said… ‘this is very welcome news for people looking to upskill or return to the job market. I urge people to check out these opportunities on line or at the local job centre.’
The vacancies, which will be posted on the Apprenticeship Matching Service on the Careers Wales website throughout the summer, will offer young people and adults the chance to secure an exciting career in a wide range of disciplines including ICT, creative industries, construction and STEM, where skill shortages are particularly prevalent.
The job roles will all be apprenticeship opportunities with qualifications to match, with a particular focus on technical and professional skills. Some of the apprenticeships that are available now include journalist, associate scientist, quantity surveyor, ICT and computing, digital and marketing.
The Apprenticeship Programme in Wales is funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund.
