A BOROUGH MP went back to the workplace to get a taste of life as an apprentice.

North Tyneside MP Mary Glindon marked National Apprenticeship Week by visiting engineering firm Fabricom Offshore Services, where she spent a day shadowing 18-year-old Darius Bahrami.

Mrs Glindon said: “It’s been gratifying to see how the apprenticeship scheme is now working and how professional, well poised, supported and most of all confident the apprentices are.

“The apprenticeship scheme Fabricom Offshore Services provide is an excellent example of why young people should consider apprenticeships, particularly in engineering as it promises such a lucrative and successful career.”
