Stuart McMillan MSP SNP has today visited EE at their facility in Greenock as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2015 which takes place from 18th to 22th May
More than 130 events will take place throughout this week from Shetland to the Borders. Businesses, training providers, colleges and councils are among those getting behind the week.
Speaking after his visit Mr McMillan said:
“I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit EE here in Greenock on the first day of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2015
“I was very impressed with the programme EE has in-place for their modern apprentices and also the enthusiasm of those undertaking the scheme. They are a credit to the organisation and I wish them every success for the rest of their apprenticeship and beyond.
“The Scottish Government has, quite rightly, placed an important focus on modern apprenticeships.
David Holmes, Head of Site EE Greenock added:
‘I am delighted that politicians of all parties continue to place importance on apprenticeships in Scotland and I have appreciated the visits from Stuart. At Greenock, EE has the added support of Skills Development Scotland who continue to carry out excellent work with our learning partners to ensure we have the wider support we need. Apprenticeships continue to form part of the EE recruitment strategy and we continue to be committed to this’.
