Leeds Labour Council is justly proud of its record on young people and Apprenticeships.

When leaders of the World’s great cities met recently in Liverpool, Leeds Labour Leader Keith Wakefield saw it as one of the city’s proud boasts – and achievements.

Alex Sobel, Labour’s candidate in Leeds NW, has pointed to the success of the Council’s policies – which included securing 490 apprentiiceships for young people in Leeds NW alone in 2012-13.

Apprenticeships for the young of Leeds are among the differences a Labour Council can and has made.

The young are one of Leeds Labour Council’s top priorities in these cash-strapped times.

There’s another sign of this concern coming up this week.

Tomorrow, Thursday 26 June, Leeds Central Apprenticeship Fair will take place from 5pm-8pm, at Leeds Town Hall.
This isn’t just an empty showcase.
There’ll be live apprenticeship vacancies available to apply for there and then.
There’ll be organisations exhibiting who have apprenticeships on offer – BMW and Connect Housing among them.
There’ll be hands on experience – plumbing and welding simulation for example.
And there’ll be an apprenticeship surgery – to deal with questions about registering on the vacancy website or about the application process.

Last year’s Fair was the most successful in the city – more than 1500 people attended
As Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Labour’s lead on Digital & Creative Technolo- gies, Culture & Skills, said: “. Apprenticeships are one of our top priorities as a Council and events such as this are a vital part of our efforts to give young people the help and support they require to fulfil their potential.”

So if you are looking for an apprenticeship – or know anyone who is – go along.
Don’t miss this once in a year career opportunity.

This year’s Fair is almost certainly set to be the most successful yet.
