Ledley King has offered his support for apprenticeship schemes all over the country by encouraging young people to consider vocational opportunities, including the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s own Apprenticeship Programme.
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is working with Southgate College to offer a number of placements on a new programme aimed at young people aged 16-19. The programme will involve a variety of activities based around active coaching and educational provision.
Club captain Ledley said: “Apprenticeships are a great way of entering the world of work for those who, like me, know what they want to do for a living. Apprenticeship Week is the perfect time to start looking into the options. I came up through the Tottenham Hotspur youth academy, so I know the value of on-the-job training. And I know it can lead to the best job in the world!”
The increase in tuition fees, in addition to one in five graduates currently being unemployed, is opening the door for more and more young people to consider vocational qualifications.
