Harrow Council’s Xcite employment scheme has just deployed its 500th apprentice.
Xcite’s 500th apprentice, Stevie Barrow, had an ambition to work in the sports/fitness industry. Stevie joined Harrow Leisure Centre as a Fitness Instructor Apprentice.
Cllr Keith Ferry, cabinet member for Business said: “Apprenticeships really open up young people’s minds to the many opportunities that are available in Harrow. Getting 500 young people into work is a massive achievement but we won’t stop there. We will continue to support local businesses to recruit young people into apprenticeships and employment, as well as create apprenticeship opportunities within our own workforce.”
