Help build Hackney’s future with an apprenticeship
Hackney’s young people are invited to play a part in building the borough’s future by joining a construction apprenticeship scheme.
Run by Hackney Homes, it will give 16 to 19-year-olds the chance to learn a trade in the repairs and maintenance industry.
Apprentices will get training, paid work experience and a qualification when they complete the course.
Third year apprentice carpenter Derrie O’Halloran said the scheme was a “great learning experience”. “I love that every day is different and no two jobs are the same.”
Cllr Philip Glanville, Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Hackney Homes, said: “The apprentice scheme is a great opportunity for young people to gain practical experience which could lead to future employment.
