Ealing Council is urging local businesses to support its campaign to create 100 apprenticeships in 100 days.
The 100 in 100 campaign, which runs from 1 September to 9 December, is an opportunity to create job opportunities for young people, by giving them access to quality employment and related training.
Employers can pledge to recruit an apprentice by applying online, or by contacting the council’s apprenticeship team.
Councillor Hitesh Tailor, cabinet member for housing, employment and skills, said: “We want employers to join our network and help us get more young people into employment. There are a lot of enthusiastic talented young people who need our support to take that first step into working life.”
Leader of the council, Julian Bell, said “I’m delighted that the 100 in 100 campaign to encourage local businesses to take on apprentices has already got off to a fantastic start with more than 30 pledges from employers already. Not only will young people gain invaluable skills and experience, I’ve seen from the council’s own apprenticeship scheme what an asset they can become to an employer.”
