Would-be apprentices are needed to join a Braintree Council programme.

Eight volunteers aged 16 and 24 can take part in The Green Team project, which gives those who are unemployed or not in education or training a chance to gain work experience and a qualification over 12 weeks.

Most of those who previously took part later found jobs.

The programme is run by the council with Groundwork Hertfordshire and Greenfields Community Housing and starts next month.
