FOURTEEN young people enjoyed a tour of a major new Weston office development, as its owner prepares to launch a new apprenticeship scheme.

Knightstone Housing invited the 18 to 24-year-olds to visit its new flagship headquarters at the Weston Gateway Business Park.

They are all enrolled on the NGAGE pre-apprenticeship programme at Weston College – and could be future candidates for Knightstone’s own course, which launches in partnership with NGAGE this month.

Phil Barker, Knightstone’s Into Work Programme manager, said: “It was great to give the young people, two of whom are our residents, an insight into our business and where we work.

“The NGAGE and Knightstone partnership is giving young people the chance to kick-start their careers and the confidence to apply for jobs and work experience in the future.
