APPRENTICESHIPS have been given the thumbs-up by Boundary Primary School.

The school is the first this year to take part in The Gazette and Beneast Training’s Future Generations programme aimed at creating 100 apprenticeships in 100 days.

Headteacher Dayle Harrison announced the school’s support for the scheme by providing a new apprenticeship opportunity for a 16-18 year old.

Following an initial 12 month stint of volunteering at the local primary school Eric Johnston from Blackpool, became school senior cleaner after completing a learning programme with Beneast Training.

Mr Johnston will become the school’s first senior cleaner to achieve a Level 2 Apprenticeship.

Mr Harrison said: “Eric has worked hard to achieve his current post and he’s eager to continue his personal development by stepping up to the new Apprenticeship programme tailored specifically by Beneast to fit both the school and his training needs. To take part in the scheme and learn about the benefits an apprentice can give your business, call Beneast on (01253) 756400.
