Carol Cooper-Smith, Ashfield’s Interim Director for Economy, said: “It’s always good to see young people doing well, and seeing them being rewarded for their dedication and hard work really makes me very proud.

“Apprenticeships are an essential way of supporting young people in our organisation and the wider business community.

“Ashfield District Council offers grants to businesses to encourage them to recruit apprentices into the workplace.

“We’re committed to ensuring that young people with high level skills are encouraged to remain in the district, seek local employment, start up their own business or take up graduate and undergraduate programmes.”
