Almost 5,000 new apprenticeships created in Haringey since 2010

Lynne Featherstone MP and local organisation 5e at the apprenticeship eventFigures reveal that 4,830 people in Haringey have secured new apprenticeships since the Lib Dems entered Government in 2010.

This includes over 1000 people who started an apprenticeship in Haringey in the last 12 months.

Liberal Democrats in Government have led the apprentice drive and are on course to deliver two million apprenticeships in Britain by the end of this parliament.

Hornsey and Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone holds an annual apprenticeship event in Haringey. This year, over 100 young people came through the doors to meet companies and find out more about apprenticeships.

Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone said:

“All young people should have an opportunity to get on in life, and apprenticeships are a great way to deliver that. During an apprenticeship, young people get paid to learn new skills, get a qualification, and make contacts in an industry.

“That’s why I hold an annual apprenticeship event, to give young people the chance to meet local and national organisations who are offering these opportunities.

“I’m so pleased to see that almost 5000 young people in Haringey have started an apprenticeship since 2010. It’s no wonder youth unemployment in my constituency has halved since 2010.

“Delivering on apprenticeships helps build the stronger economy and fairer society Britain needs.”
