Stevenson Welcomes New Action to Support Apprenticeships

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed an announcement from the Scottish Government that small and medium sized businesses in the manufacturing, textiles, food & drink and energy sectors will be offered £2,000 to take on a new apprentice. The financial incentive will help young people gain new training while taking part in apprenticeships and help the companies involved to grow.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Supporting apprenticeships is an important part of Scotland’s economic recovery efforts and I welcome this latest action from the Scottish Government. Helping young people to gain new skills through apprenticeships is a key part of expanding Scotland’s skilled workforce.

“This scheme will help to create opportunities for Scotland’s young people who are at the start of their careers but will also grow our skilled workforce and make Scotland a more attractive place for companies to invest.

“I hope that eligible businesses in Banff & Buchan will seriously consider taking part in this scheme, gaining support to grow their business and helping 16-19 year olds to learn invaluable new skills”.
