Haydn Stewart, 17, a former pupil at St Benedict’s in Linwood, and Fraser Ewington, 17, who went to Johnstone High, are first-year apprentices. Our Skillsforce caught up with them on week one of their apprenticeship.
Fraser says: “I didn’t know what job I wanted to do. I put my name forward and it has worked out really well for me.”
Josh Montgomery, 18, who is in his second year, is one of nine apprentices in total taken on by A&D Logistics over two years.
He says: “I stayed on for sixth year, but I knew I had a job at the end of it.
“Before I started the apprenticeship I was coming in for work experience a couple of hours every week. Now I want to get out on the road.”
John seems visibly proud of his new band of apprentices.
