The Stationers’ Company and Ravensbourne will launch a new Apprenticeship initiative, Apprentice 18, on 27th June 2018 at Ravensbourne University. The Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, will be in attendance.
30 Companies and 400 students will come together to raise awareness of Apprenticeship opportunities and to create long-term links between Academies across Greater London and Employers in our Industries.
Participating companies range from BBC, ITV, Pearson and Google to The Evening Standard, Park Communications, Paragon Whitehat and Barclays.
Existing apprentices and staff from each of the 30 companies will set up a stall and students will have discussion slots based on a speed-dating model.
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 Stationers’ Company’s objective is to reinforce the strengths of apprenticeships and the life chances they offer young people. The company is determined to drive the take-up of apprenticeships in our sectors, for the good of business and the community.
