Cordeaux Academy has finally started its delivery of apprenticeships for young people and local businesses in the Louth area.

The first tranche of Motor Vehicle apprentices were enrolled at the Academy at the end of October, and now spend every Wednesday within the Wolds Centre to receive the technical specification of the apprenticeship.

Working closely with its partner, LAGAT, the apprentices are supported and monitored for 
the remaining four days a week when they are with their employers in the 
motor industry.

Assistant Vice Principal, Dave Gates, said: “This initiative is the culmination of two years work in seeking to offer apprenticeships to the young people of Louth.

“We are fortunate to have state-of-the-art facilities within the Academy that enable us to deliver this apprenticeship line.

“We see this at the first step towards strengthening our offer with a view to initiating Construction as soon after the Christmas 
period as possible.”

Mr Gates added: “I would urge any local business who may be considering taking on an apprentice to contact us.

“The outcome is an employee who is fully conversant with the working of the company, and fully committed to its ethos and ideals.”
