STUDENTS at Highbury College are celebrating apprenticeship success, securing roles with a range of local businesses.

REED NCFE, which provides specialist training and job-search support to young people, is running a campaign to help students become more employable.

Together with Highbury College, the organisation is focusing on the development of mind-set and employability skills.

Over the past three months, more than 30 students have secured apprenticeships by accessing the service, which makes students three times more likely to find a job, be promoted and retained.

Helen Brennan, executive director of student support and alumni services at Highbury College, said: ‘At Highbury College our mission is to enable all our students to succeed.

‘This means providing the right skills and qualifications young people need to progress to work or further study, along with valuable work experience and outstanding support and guidance.’
