Rhondda Cynon Taf Council

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council works with a range of external partners, including Bridgend College and Coleg Y Cymoedd, to deliver more than 20 Apprenticeships in diverse careers such as engineering, horticulture, health and social care, fitness, mechanics, and technical sound, light and stage.

The council embeds its current 85 apprentices alongside experienced mentors and a dedicated co-ordinator to develop them into highly competent individuals with long term employment prospects with RCT.

Supporting the apprentices is RCT’s employment, education and training manager Sian Woolson who said: “We view an Apprenticeship as the beginning of a journey extending beyond their initial two-year period. This has resulted in over 90% of our apprentices securing employment and education opportunities with the vast majority staying with us.”
