Workplace and Newham College partners in solving youth unemployment
PUBLISHED: 08:00 13 March 2012
Newham College has teamed up with Newham Council’s Workplace scheme to get young people on apprenticeships into employment.
Workplace, which has three offices in the borough, will match apprenticeship vacancies to trainees on the College’s business administration access course.
Newham College’s head of Apprenticeships and Collaborate Provision, Roderick Sutherland, said: “Working with Newham Workplace is key to delivering apprenticeships throughout the East End of London.
“More importantly, it can help young people secure sustainable, long term jobs.”
Newham College, which has campuses in East Ham and Stratford training over 1,200 apprentices, are also launching a security work academy on March 5 in partnership with Security Response Training.
The six week-full time course for a Level Two in stewarding spectator events and door supervision sets students up for interviews with Olympics security firms.
Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, said: “Our priority is to ensure our residents have the relevant skills and traning to benefit from the many employment opportunities in the borough and apprenticeships are just one of the many ways we are doing this.”
