Dundee, Glasgow, and West Lothian councils have received awards recognising quality training and employment in their direct labour organisations.

Deputy local government minister Frank McAveety and COSLA president Norman Murray presented awards recognising the achievement of three building services apprentices and the council DLOs in which they work.

Speaking at the Association of Direct Labour Organisations ceremony, Mr McAveety said:

'I've been encouraging councils to modernise and equip themselves for the challenges of this new century.

'Providing an environment in which high quality training and employment is available for local young people is an important part of that process.

'These awards to building services apprentices and their councils show that best value public services can provide valuable vocational opportunities and benefit the wider community.'

BACKGROUND

ADLO was formed in the early 1980s to help local authorities respond to the introduction of compulsory competitive tendering. They provide members with a range of information, advisory and lobbying services and, through a consultancy arm, help councils manage all stages of the

competition process. ADLO have a Scottish branch comprising of a number of groups including the building division.
