On the 13th February national charity Inspiring the Future hosted an Apprenticeship Careers Fair at City Hall. London Mayor Boris Johnson welcomed Apprentices from a wide range of sectors and 200 school pupils.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said:
“Inspiring the Future gives young people an invaluable insight into a range of careers and provides businesses with access to an incredible pool of young talent. I have pledged to generate many thousands of apprenticeships in London by 2016, and I hope that many of the young people visiting us here today will be inspired to use an apprenticeship as a springboard to a great career.”
Over 200 young people from six London schools took part in the careers fair to learn about different jobs, careers and apprenticeships as a career route. Inspiring the Future used this event to announce their intention to get apprentices talking with students in every state school in England during 2014.
