The apprenticeship event I’ve organised will take place tomorrow, 14th August, between 2pm – 6pm at Haringey Civic Centre, High Road, Wood Green, London, N22 8LE.
We have around 20 companies and organisations confirmed to exhibit their apprenticeship opportunities – with well over 500 vacant positions between them.
The companies include: Barclays, Tottenham Hotspurs, National Apprenticeship Service and London Apprenticeship Company.
There will also be workshops to give advice on how to apply for the apprenticeships. This is a great chance to make contact with companies and get expert advice on finding the best apprenticeship for you .
Apprenticeships are a great way to kick start careers – by gaining experience and contacts in an industry and getting paid to learn a trade.
I hope as many of Haringey’s young and out-of-work people will come down and see what’s on offer.
The Government Apprenticeship Ambassador to Business, Gordon Birtwistle MP will also be there, and will make a speech.
If you’re a young person, a parent, looking for work, or looking to try something different, please do come along and find out more!
