Apprenticeship scheme set to be launched in Louth


Cordeaux Academy has been working with a number of agencies to develop traineeships and apprenticeships for the young people of Louth and the surrounding area, and has now outlined its plans for the future.

Previously, anyone wishing to undertake an apprenticeship has had to travel to Lincoln, Horncastle, Boston or Grimsby, which inevitably involves a great deal of time, travelling and expense.

Cordeaux has a purpose-built vocational centre with state of the art motor vehicle and leisure facilities at its disposal, and it is geared up to offer these courses.

To launch this project, the Academy is opening its doors to employers in the area at 7pm on Tuesday April 21, including refreshments and a tour of the facility.

Assistant Vice Principal Dave Gates said: “With a general election rapidly approaching, apprenticeships are firmly on the major political parties agendas. They are the major area of growth and support the recovery of the economy.

“We already offer a variety of vocational routes through the curriculum in motor vehicles, construction and sport. Traineeships and apprenticeships are a natural progression and extension of the curriculum.

“They offer students a pathway into employment with training, a salary and necessary support. I hope the local business community take the time and opportunity to come along and visit us.
