Apprentice 18 will reinforce apprenticeship schemes


On 27 June at Ravensbourne University, London, The Stationers’ Company and Ravensbourne will launch an exciting new apprenticeship initiative, “Apprentice 18”.

The Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, will attend as 30 Companies and 400 students come together to raise awareness of apprenticeship opportunities and to create long-term links between academies across Greater London and employers.

Participating companies range from BBC, ITV, Pearson and Google to The Evening Standard, Park Communications, Paragon Whitehat and Barclays.

This is part of a long-term ambition to increase opportunities for students in Greater London and will be repeated in future years and other parts of the country. The main objective of the event is to reinforce the strengths of apprenticeships and the chances they offer young people.
