Eleven new apprentices in the South Devon area now have the exciting opportunity to acquire skills and expertise to prepare them for employment in the expanding marine, boat building, food, drink and other fishing based businesses in the area.
The apprenticeships have been designed and developed by South Devon College who have a long and successful history of supporting apprentices. The apprenticeship project is one of the elements of the South Devon Fishing Industry Development Scheme (a project part funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government through the Coastal Communities).

Further apprenticeships are being planned for the South Devon area to start in January 2015. Further information about these (either for potential apprentices or employers who are considering employing an apprentice), can be found here.
