Evening Post launches campaign to create 100 apprenticeships in 100 days
TODAY, the Evening Post is launching an appeal that could change the lives and secure the futures of scores of youngsters in our area.
We are asking the region’s businesses – both large and small – to take on 100 apprentices in 100 days.
As youth unemployment hits record levels, we know there are hundreds of young people who are keen to start work but are not quite ready to give up on their education.
And we know there are dozens of companies that need apprentices.

Our 100 in 100 Apprenticeship Challenge is designed to bring these two groups – employer and employee – together.
Our campaign will help people like 20-year-old Julian Grant, a volunteer at the Malcolm X community centre in St Paul’s, whose life was turned around when he became an apprentice steward at the Colston Hall.
But it will also invigorate our region’s businesses by bringing the vitality, drive and willingness to learn of our young people to their shop floors, offices and warehouses.
Apprenticeships give companies the chance to invest in their own futures, as well as those of their young employees, and are a vital catalyst in the recovery of our fragile economy.
Two weeks ago, the new government underlined its commitment to get young people into work by announcing a further £150 million for its apprenticeships programme.
Today, we make a plea to our local businesses to match that pledge and help us reach our apprenticeships goal.
Over the coming months, the Evening Post will feature young people who want to become apprentices, those already benefiting from the schemes, the companies that employ them and the organisations that train them.
And we will show that by giving young people a chance to make their futures brighter, our businesses can reap the rewards today.
