The Labour party politician, who is Member of Parliament for the Wentworth and Dearne constituency in South Yorkshire, plans to host the Apprenticeship which will primarily focus on administration, case work and support duties within the constituency office.
The lucky apprentice will face tasks such as enquiry responses, communications and liaison with relevant parties, to important aspects of the work, such as dealing with matters on the MP’s behalf and managing his diary. The MP is very keen to promote employment through schemes such as Apprenticeships across the region, which has been hard-hit by the recession.
Mr Healey said “I am sure an Apprentice will be a great addition to the constituency team and help me in the work I do as local MP. This shows that Apprenticeships aren’t just for people who want to train as plumbers or electricians – there are Apprenticeships out there that allow young people to take a first step in a wide range of different careers.”
“Nationally youth unemployment is touching 1 million and in the constituency the number of young people out of work for at least a year has more than tripled in the last 12 months”
The College continues to build an extensive portfolio of success stories of placing young, talented individuals into local businesses to be trained on-site in a specific industry, benefitting both the Apprentice and the business. The College deal with a broad range of Apprenticeships including IT, Health and Social Care, Hairdressing, Retail, Team Leading and Accounting, among many others.
