For the third consecutive year Ealing Council is urging local businesses to back its bid to create 100 apprenticeships in 100 days.
The 100 in 100 campaign, which runs from 1 September to 9 December, is a drive to create job opportunities for young people by giving them access to quality employment and related training.
It’s the third year the council has run the campaign after exceeding its target in 2013 and 2014.
Financial support is available for small and medium sized employers that have not previously provided an apprenticeship.
Councillor Steve Hynes, cabinet member for prosperity, skills and employment, said: “After the great success of the last two years in getting businesses to pledge to create new apprenticeships, I’m delighted that we’re once again running the 100 in 100 campaign.
“Not only do apprenticeships provide a wonderful training opportunity for young people, giving them a structured route into a career, they also bring enormous benefits to the businesses involved.”
