Apprenticeships at Transport for London (TfL) were promoted at an event at Westfield Stratford City held in cooperation with Newham Council’s Workplace service.

At the event, recruitment teams from both TfL and Workplace registered interest from more than 300 Newham residents.

The apprenticeships are available in a range of areas, with a minimum age limit of 16 and no upper age limit.

Qualifications range from level 2 to level 6, with starting salaries of £17,000 a year.

Cllr Terry Paul opened the event, on February 7, alongside TfL’s director of asset management for surface transport, Dana Skelley.

“This is an example of how regeneration in the borough is creating opportunities for Newham residents,” said Cllr Paul.

“With the arrival of TfL at International Quarter London, Workplace will continue to work closely with TfL and other organisations moving into the borough to ensure that Newham residents benefit.”

Anyone interested in the scheme can contact Workplace on 020 3373 1101 or
