A social enterprise cafe that helps young people to gain skills in catering and hospitality has started recruiting new trainees.
Artysans in Inverness was opened by charity the Calman Trust to offer training to 14 to 25-year-olds.
In October last year, the project won the innovation prize at the Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards.
Since opening at the start of 2011, it has provided training to 17 young job seekers.
Among the latest apprentices are Daz Waring, 21, and his sister Amy, 17, from Alness, who are working as catering and retail assistants at Artysans.
