Three young people in Braintree have been recruited as apprentices by local firms.

Braintree District Museum, Baby and Beyond, Taylor Milburn and Ignite Business Enterprise have each taken on an apprentice and will give them valuable work experience and enable them to receive a nationally recognised qualification under Braintree District Council’s scheme, funded by Portas and managed by Seetec.

Anee Dixon at Braintree District Museum will earn a Retail Skills Level 2 qualification, while Chris Claridge who got a place at Taylor Milburn and Laura Yates at Ignite will gain their Business Administration Level 2.
