Labour Highlands and Islands Regional MSP, Rhoda Grant yesterday (4th March 2019) visited the scenic Highland Farm Café in Dingwall to meet some of the Apprentices during Skills Development Scotland’s Apprenticeship Week 2019.
Scottish Apprenticeship Week highlights the benefits apprenticeships bring to individuals, businesses and the economy. This year’s theme is “Skills for the Future”, which is to recognise the importance of investing in the workforce while also celebrating the achievements of individual apprentices.
Mrs Grant met Mairi and Graeme who are two Apprentices currently hired by Highland Farm Café under an apprenticeship.
“It’s wonderful to celebrate this week and to remind individuals that there are different options for your chosen career”, said Rhoda Grant
She continued “Some people just cannot sit in a classroom full-time and need that practical experience thus an apprenticeship would be ideal.”
“I’m delighted to support this week and I applaud businesses such as Highland Farm Café who take part in these schemes.“
