Young people in Sheffield are changing the face of their city while carving out a future for themselves.
A group of 27 apprentices between the ages of 18 and 24 have been taken on to deliver Sheffield Council’s £2 billion Streets Ahead programme.
The employees were recruited by contractor Amey and each chose a specialism in everything from highway maintenance and street lighting to administration.
Business apprentice Jamie Frith, aged 21, of Southey Green, said: “I feel proud to be part of something that is going to change Sheffield for the better.”
Council leader Julie Dore said: “We are committed to working with businesses to create opportunities to help young people into work.”
