Over 100 people came through the doors to take a look at the opportunities available with organisations such as Barclays, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and the National Apprenticeship Service.
At the event, one attendee secured an interview at a local restaurant, six people signed up for a stewarding course at Tottenham Hotspurs, and local organisation 5e enrolled 15 people on their ‘skills boost’ programme.
25 of the people who attended expressed an interest in a community cadet course with the London Fire Brigade, and 14 will attend an open day at the North London Garages next week.
Youth unemployment in the Lib Dem MP’s constituency of Hornsey and Wood Green has halved since 2010. At the event, the local MP said she wanted Haringey to continue to lead the way in getting into work.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“This year’s apprenticeship event was a great success. I’d like to thank all the companies who came along to advertise their courses and vacancies, and wish all the attendees who signed up for courses and open days the best of luck.
“Apprenticeships are a great way to kick start a career and I am so pleased to be able to advertise them to local youngsters by putting on this event. Creating apprenticeships is a Lib Dem priority, and we’ve worked with businesses to help create 1.8 million new positions in the last 4 years.
“With youth unemployment in my constituency halved since 2010, our bright young talent here in Haringey are really setting a great example to the rest of the capital!”
