Labour leader Tony Blair formally unveiled several city council employment enhancement initiatives in Glasgow today.

Glasgow City Council used Mr Blair's visit to announce a new 'adult apprenticeship' scheme, and the expansion of its training centre and window factory.

This year the council has announced an intake of 21 unskilled and semi-skilled adults for full apprenticeships. The council will use a £1m programme of community projects to provide on-the-job training.

Projects include setting up offices for a local economic initiative in Pollok, and converting a redundant primary school into offices and community facilities for a housing association.

The council has also enlarged its apprentice training centre, as well as expanding its window factory - set up in 1991 to help reduce council house maintenance costs and support the Glasgow Action for Warm Homes policy.
