CGC PLAYS ITS PART IN HELPING YOUNG WORKERS

Company to attend Skills Development Scotland Event in Paisley

JANUARY 22 2018

City Gate Construction is to play its part in a skills-related event to be held in Paisley in late January.

The company will be present at the forthcoming Modern Apprenticeship Information & Vacancy Event organised by Skills Development Scotland.

Paisley-based West College Scotland are Skills Development Scotland’s partners in the event at Paisley Town Hall on January 30 from 5.30 to 8.30 pm.

Skills Development Scotland have delivered a very successful Modern Apprenticeship event for the past two years working alongside the College.

This event provides a valuable opportunity to bring employers & potential apprentices together.

There will be guest speakers and Modern Apprenticeship “Ambassadors” explaining how they have benefited from choosing this career path as well as a myth-busting session around Apprenticeships and how to secure a place on one.

The event is aimed at Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire senior school pupils & their parents and a variety of local employers interested in recruiting Apprentices.

The young people, family & friends will have the opportunity to speak with employers who are currently aiming to recruit or will be in the near future.

Leo Reilly, Managing Director of CGC, said: “We applaud West College Scotland and Skills Development Scotland for again organising this worthwhile occasion.

“We are privileged to be attending and remain committed to helping young people find their way into the workplace. Our Apprenticeship Programme has been running for some time and has been so successful that most of those on it eventually become full time members of staff.”
