‘Apprenticeship talks in every school’ pledge
13 Feb 2014
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.
