SFT Apprenticeships Finals

Motion S4M-13327: Richard Simpson, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Labour
That the Parliament congratulates Kirsty Lawson from the Asda St Leonards store in Dunfermline in Fife, who reached the final of the SFT’s National Apprentice of the Year and was shortlisted to the final three from more than 500 applicants; recognises the value of schemes such as the Babcock apprenticeship programme, which has been instrumental to her development; further welcomes the recognition that Scotland needs to up its game in creating such opportunities for young people and particularly for disabled young people, and believes that part-time college courses combined with apprenticeships have a valuable role to play.
