Cllr Angus McCormack, Chairman of Education, Sport and Children’s Services, said:

"This is a fantastic opportunity for people from the Butt to Barra to earn whilst they learn, and very importantly - to do so in their own areas. This ties in very well indeed to the Comhairle’s aims to reverse depopulation, provide our people with the opportunity to remain in their communities whilst also contributing to the economy. I would particularly encourage those who speak Gaelic to express their interest in these apprenticeships. I would reiterate that the apprenticeships are open to anyone, not just young people, and anyone who feels that they may be interested should search for the available roles at My Job Scotland (Opens in a new window or downloads a file).

The Comhairle is committed to workforce planning and having a sustainable platform for the future, to help our communities and our islands to flourish and we will continue to work hard to ensure that we achieve these aims."
