Young people are the future

Leader of Epping Forest District Council Councillor Chris Whitbread said:  “Apprenticeships can help develop the skills and knowledge needed in someone’s career. They can be especially beneficial for young people who have little or no experience of the workplace“

“I am very pleased that Epping Forest District Council is able to offer these apprenticeship posts. Young people are the future and I am delighted that this council is able to invest in them.  We are a small council but provide a wide range of services, so there are a number of varied and interesting opportunities here.  I would urge anyone who has finished school or college this summer and not sure of their next step to find out more about joining our apprenticeship scheme.”
