An important new apprenticeship scheme which would bring ‘major social and economic’ benefits to Angus has been discussed by local councillors.
And as part of our drive to support strong local initiatives, Angus County Press would like to announce our full backing for the scheme should councillors decide to go ahead with it. The future of young people in our county is of great importance to all of us and we are keen to be associated with any drive that will help secure training and employment for school leavers and other unemployed youngsters in Angus.
As the Brechin Advertiser was going to press on Tuesday, Angus Council’s policy and resources committee was discussing the potential merits of the scheme which they were being asked to recommend.
Council officers reported to the committee that the proposed scheme had the potential to have a significant social and economic impact on the communities and businesses of Angus.
Announcing the group’s backing ACP group editor Brian Stormont said: “At Angus County Press, we are delighted to back this campaign through our newspapers and websites.”
