Workers on electrical courses 'could be in demand for Scottish scheme'

Plans for a new project in Scotland, which will see the renovation of 41 high streets, have been announced by the Scottish Government and could provide employment opportunities to workers with approved electrical qualifications.

Supported by £20 million of state money from the Town Centre Regeneration Fund, several Scottish town centres are set to get makeovers. These will include the installation of facilities for weekend markets, Wi-Fi zones, entertainment venues, and town hall and theatre upgrades - all of which might need high-quality tradespersons to help set up.

Housing and communities minister Alex Neil commented that the project could benefit many in the country.

"It's vital we support innovative public and private sector companies and community groups to move forward with ideas that will support local jobs, businesses and families," he said.

Mr Neil recently announced a new home insulation scheme in Scotland, which will deliver energy-efficient upgrades and advice to homes affected by poverty.
