Young Enterprise Apprentices Celebrate Success!

Shannen Scott (21) and Nicola England (19) (first and second from left joined by other members of the Apprentice team) are the first of a group of young people from Fife to complete the SFEDI Awards Level 3 Diploma in Enterprising Skills in a Business Environment as part of their unique Enterprise programme. On completion of her qualification Shannen has been appointed Chief Executive (designate) of Apprenticeships in Scotland, a leading social enterprise specialising in youth recruitment, while Nicola has successfully secured a new appointment as an office manager for an educational charity.  The appointment makes Shannen one of the youngest Chief Executives in the country and strengthens the case for further programmes focussed on enterprise. 

The programme is part of Fife Council’s ‘Culture of Enterprise Initiative’ which will support a further 20 learners in 2014. 

Ronnie Davidson, Career Development Director at Career Studio, had this to say, “The diploma has been a terrific introduction to working life for the girls and their achievements are fantastic. The great thing about this qualification is that it supports young people in developing an emotional engagement with their work. Once you have developed a passion for what you are doing, the sky’s the limit. I would encourage all entrepreneurs to bring a young person into their business and work with them using the diploma to support success”.
