Great day for our current and former Modern Apprentices on the 28th of September as they got to meet with MSP Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Employability and Training. This was a great opportunity for each young person to discuss their employment and training journey for which all agreed that the Modern Apprenticeship they undertook was key to them gaining full time sustainable employment in their chosen industry.
The Minister chatted openly with the young people about their barriers to employment initially before asking how TIGERS helped them develop into the well rounded individuals they have become.
Below is the name of both former and current Modern Apprentices who were involved in the visit.
Ryan Sutherland - Carillion Rail
Nikita Smith - Easthall Park Housing Association
Colette Cassidy - Lullaby Lane
Ibrahim Hussein - Carillion Plc
Alannah Craig - Allied Vehicles
