TWO Inverclyde housing bodies have joined forces with a Scottish university to offer a graduate apprenticeship scheme.

Cloch Housing Association, in partnership with Oak Tree HA, is working with Glasgow Caledonian University to give a graduate a chance to become a chartered accountant.

The apprenticeship programme will give a graduate the chance to work with the associations' shared finance service while gaining a masters degree in accountancy.

The role is being jointly funded by the associations and the cost of the degree will be paid for through the Skills Development Scotland graduate apprenticeship scheme.
