APPRENTICES in Scarborough have shown that they have the recipe for a successful career by getting to grips with the latest cutting edge technology in their vocational areas.

Scarborough Mayor Hazel Lynskey, together with Mayoress Sheila Kettlewell, visited Yorkshire Coast College on Tuesday and the visit coincided with National Apprenticeship Week.

Bonita Hodge, the college principal, said they had been impressed with what they had seen and there were a number of events arranged througout the week.

She said: “They saw apprentices from all different age groups and levels. They spent some time with the 14 to 16-year-olds and they were particularly interested in IT and how that contributes to any work area.

The college training kitchens have recently been refurbished and each area has been fitted with touch screen computer technology.

Bonita added: “They can look at recipes or watch demonstrations. The Mayor and Mayoress said they were really delighted with what they’d seen and really excited about the resources in the college.”

The information and feedback gathered from the week’s various events will be compiled in a newsletter which will be sent to employers and schools.
