West Suffolk Apprenticeship Scheme 2016/17

A word from our Chief Executive

"As chief executive of Forest Heath District and St Edmundsbury Borough Councils, I am a passionate believer in apprentices - I started my career as one.

Apprenticeships are about developing your key skills. Our two councils, (operating under the banner of West Suffolk), have a strong track record for developing apprentices and an award winning scheme. You will earn as you learn and boost your career progression, whether you stay in the public sector or not.

Starting as an apprentice was a kick start to my career. That valuable experience gave me a significant advantage in gaining my first job. An apprenticeship with us could do the same for you."
