Q is for Qualifications
Earlier on in our A to Z of council services, we told you about ‘Growing Our Own’ – a scheme aimed at giving people opportunities to build rewarding careers with the council.
With this in mind, we thought we’d use the letter Q to focus on Qualifications. Meet Rhian McCuaig. Rhian works as a Digital Marketing Apprentice with the council’s Communications Team and has just passed her year-long Digital Communication apprenticeship in less than 7 months!
She said: “I love my job and I’m so happy to have been given the opportunity to earn qualifications whilst being able to work and gain experience at the same time.
“Leaving Argyll and Bute to go college or university never really appealed to me, so when this apprenticeship was advertised I jumped at the chance.
“Not only have I now completed my apprenticeship, but I have also been given the opportunity to do additional online courses and take part in a variety of interesting webinars. I’d thoroughly recommend an apprenticeship with the council.”
