4 to 8 March is Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2024 and Martin Whitfield MSP helped mark the week with a visit to a local employer to meet staff who have benefited from apprenticeships.

This year the South Scotland MSP went to Dunbar Leisure Pool to chat with three members of Enjoy Leisure staff who have all undergone apprenticeships to help develop their careers in the leisure sector.

While Mr Whitfield was at the Leisure Pool he also presented one of the three staff, Abby Russell, with her Modern Apprenticeship certificate of completion.

Commenting after his visit, Martin Whitfield MSP said: 

“I’m very grateful to Enjoy Leisure for inviting me to Dunbar Leisure Pool during Scottish Apprenticeship Week to find out more about its staff training and development, including the difference apprenticeships can make.

“The staff I met with have clearly gained a lot from their experience of apprenticeships, which have helped them to build successful careers in the leisure sector.

“I was also delighted to be asked to present a Modern Apprenticeship certificate to Abby and wish her and her colleagues all the best with their futures at Enjoy.”
