YOUNG people spoke to employers about the benefits of apprenticeships at an event at Gunwharf Quays.

Taking place at the Tiger Tiger bar and restaurant, the teenagers spoke on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service and Portsmouth City Council’s Youth Support Service.

They addressed businesses who were being encouraged to take on new apprentices in a drive to get 60 new young people into schemes during 2012 in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

There were also companies who have taken on apprentices giving advice and the event saw the launch of the Small Employer Incentive grant to aid firms in taking people on.
