Caerphilly County Borough Council currently has a number of apprenticeship opportunities available across a range of council services.

Two year apprenticeship opportunities are currently available in the following service areas:-

The closing date for all apprenticeship opportunities is 8 November 2018.

The launch of this apprenticeship scheme follows Cabinet’s decision in July this year to allocate £530,000 of savings to providing apprenticeship opportunities at Caerphilly County Borough Council.

The funding was established as a result of an underspend in this area, which has been released for the new apprenticeship programme.

Cllr Colin Gordon, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services said, “Apprenticeships have been used by the council since 1996 to enable people to obtain vital skills and experience which can be used to secure long term employment. The apprenticeships will also ensure that skills shortages are addressed to meet the future needs of the council.

“We’re very pleased to be able to offer this new apprenticeship programme and are sure the employment opportunities will prove very popular”.

The apprenticeships programme will support Welsh Government and Caerphilly County Borough Council’s employment, regeneration, skills and apprenticeships priorities, and contribute to a number of well-being goals in the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.
