The Glasgow area is the hub of the metropolitan area of West Central Scotland and has the largest economy in Scotland. Once dominant industries such as heavy engineering and shipbuilding have declined but it remains a major manufacturing centre with large firms headquartered in the city such as Aggreko, Weir Group, and Albion Motors. The school leaver jobs and apprenticeships on offer in Glasgow are in something of a transition period as those older traditional industries give way to newer growth industries that are ready to stand alongside other mainstay sectors such as tourism and finance. According to the Glasgow Economic Commission, the five strongest areas of the future economy for Glasgow will be: Financial and Business Services, the Low Carbon Industries, the Engineering, Design and Manufacturing industries, Life Sciences and the Tourism and Events sector.
For young apprentices looking to get into an area with huge growth potential the low carbon industries that Glasgow is seeking to become a specialist in are particularly exciting. The Technology and Innovation Centre alone will create 700 new jobs in this field and the Power Networks Demonstration Centre is a £12.5 million development designed to showcase new green technologies.
