The apprentices

Have your say

Six new apprentices have been employed to help maintain council housing in Lancaster, thanks to an innovative new employment scheme.

Lancaster Council, its housing maintenance partner Forrest, Constructing the Future Lancashire (CTFL) and CITB ConstructionSkills introduced the scheme with the aim of getting school leavers into the construction industry.

The scheme creates apprenticeships in traditional building crafts such as joinery, plastering and plumbing.
