Wolverhampton City Council has launched a new apprenticeship scheme.
Thirty 16 to 18-year-olds will be recruited, with 15 starting in February and a further 15 in September.
They include positions in horticulture, arboriculture, building, electrical services, cleaning, catering and administration.

The council said it will be recruiting the apprentices based on a one-year fixed term contract on a salary of £7,800.
