Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council executive board member with responsibility for leisure and skills said:
“A key priority for the council is getting young people into work. An apprenticeship offers a great starting point where you can earn while you learn the new skills that are required by your employer now and build the foundation for your progression. Many young people go on to complete a higher level apprenticeship, degrees and professional qualifications.
“We have a large number of apprenticeships available across the city, and we want to make sure we are communicating with as many young people as possible, so these opportunities are not missed.”
