Apprenticeships available to young islanders will grow as Guernsey's College of Further Education plans to offer courses in new subjects.

This comes after a review by the College found employers are seeing real benefits in nurturing and developing local talent.

Next year, new courses will start in:

  • Adult Care
  • Early Years
  • Retail (management)

I didn't get a great education coming out of school, but through college I have managed to better myself and hopefully better my future as well.

The College claims many sectors would welcome apprentices in their businesses as a way of recruiting staff who can learn on the job.
