Bexley number one for apprenticeships

Bexley is officially the most successful London borough for under-19 apprenticeship starts in 2019. An impressive 570 Bexley young people have celebrated the start of a new career.

Cabinet Member for Growth, Cllr Louie French said: “Our recent Learning, Skills and Employment Strategy contained an aspiration for Bexley to achieve the highest number of under-19 apprenticeship starts. After being second highest for several years we wanted to aim even higher.”

“With further apprenticeship changes on the horizon, we are already looking at how we can maintain our position and continue to deliver apprenticeship opportunities for the borough’s young people.”

The figures are from the Department for Education statistics for 18/19 for the number of apprenticeship starts in London.

Bexley’s annual apprenticeship event will take place on Monday 3 February at the Civic Offices, Bexleyheath.
