: National Assembly Apprenticeship Scheme 2018 – Drop-in & Outreach Session’s – Grangetown and Butetown

*National Assembly Apprenticeship Scheme 2018*

Living Wage Salary: £16,258


We’re taking on four enthusiastic apprentices to work with us at the National Assembly. This is a paid apprenticeship and you’ll gain a qualification in Business Administration while gaining valuable work experience.


Purpose of the Assembly Commission Apprenticeship Scheme

The Assembly Commission Apprenticeship scheme presents an exciting opportunity for individuals to learn and develop within a parliamentary place of work. We are looking for four apprentices to work in various teams throughout the Commission. Each will follow a carefully designed programme, working in three areas for four month blocks, as well as taking part in short shadowing placements with other teams across the organisation.


To apply, you:

  • will be 16 or older by 1 September, 2018;
  • won’t be in full-time education or employment by the time the apprenticeship starts; and
  • will not need any specific qualification.


*If you already have a qualification at NVQ level 3 (or higher), then unfortunately you will not be eligible to apply.*


If you have any questions about the scheme or need help with the ONLINE application, you can attend any of the Outreach and Drop-in sessions at these locations and times:


*Grangetown Hyb, Havelock Place, Grangetown*

14th March 2018 at 5pm – 7pm*


*Butetown Community Centre, Loudoun Square, Butetown*

20th March 2018 at 5pm – 7pm


The deadline is 10.00 on Friday, 13 April.


*Who can be an Assembly apprentice?*

Absolutely anyone can be an apprentice at the National Assembly for Wales. We meant it!


*You might be leaving school and looking for a practical way to learn the skills you want. You could be looking to change careers, be unemployed or retired. Whatever your background or situation, there’s an apprenticeship here for you. With all the support and training you need.*


We know your talent has nothing to do with your age, background or disability. We are an Assembly for all.

Important Announcement!!!

Image result for important announcement

As you may be aware, the Welsh Government’s Communities First Programme will end on 31st March 2018. This means South Riverside Community Development Centre (SRCDC) who host the project will not receive any further funding from Cardiff Council after 31st March 2018 and it’s with regret I am writing to confirm all existing BRG Communities First services will finish at the end of March. SRCDC are endeavouring to seek new funding and partnership opportunities in order to provide courses and services to suit the needs of the local communities. 


What do you Think??

Residents are saying that a new off licence should be stopped from opening in a suburb, according to the Residents it already had its share of homeless people, drug addicts and crime. An application has already been sent to Cardiff Council for a shop which could sell alcohol to open at 46 Tudor Street, Riverside. 

But it does have some objections from some Residents, one resident that wishes to be unnamed says “that the area is really well known for its history of prostitution, drug dealers and drug addicts”. According to the source, the police and emergency services are there daily due to drug issues. The police made a fantastic effort to deal with the issues but believe that an another licensed shop wont make things better, actually the complete opposite, it actually make matters worse than it already is.

The biggest issue the residents had brought forward is the noise, drunken behavior and attracting the wrong sort of groups into a very residential area

   Thanks for reading, we would love to know your opinions on this so please feel free to leave a comment and don’t forget to give us a fellow on twitter as we tweet daily.
