Corby Council staff have been given the opportunity to gain extra skills by taking part in a new apprenticeship scheme.

More than 20 employees are training in business administration, customer service or for Institute of Leadership and Management qualifications.

The scheme is being run in partnership with Evolve Business Training, run by Tresham College to offer apprenticeships in different fields.

Leader of Corby Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for all of our employees and it’s encouraging to see that members of staff are on board with the programme. We are always looking to support members of staff who want to gain qualifications and develop their skills. I wish the best of luck to all of our learners and hope to see their apprenticeship open more doors for them in future.”

Rachel Kay, Tresham College’s managing director and deputy principal, said: “We are extremely happy that Corby Council has continued to support our pledge to help increase the amount of apprenticeships available.”

Danielle Davies, who is a business administration apprentice, said: “I enjoy learning and this apprenticeship will help me in my current role, as well as future roles.”
