I was very pleased to meet again with Garry Talbert at Angus Training Group to discuss the skills needed as the world transitions into a sustainable development model. It was encouraging to hear of all the local businesses who are taking on apprentices from the Group, and their upcoming intake of over 50 young people.

Their initiative is vital in ensuring local young people have access to the necessary skills for employment and I am grateful for their work in our community.
