LDN Apprenticeships was founded in 2010 in response to the high levels of youth unemployment in London that were caused by the 2008 financial crash. There were literally millions of young people who had no way of getting their foot in the door at awesome companies.
We saw an opportunity to use apprenticeships as a tool to connect businesses and young people from all backgrounds to one another. Back then, we focused much of our work in the technology sector and exclusively on young people – many of our clients and apprenticeships were designed to address the acute skills shortages in the tech cluster in east London (hence the name, LDN Apprenticeships).
Since then, we’ve moved further afield, opened our apprenticeships up to people of all ages, and used our track record to launch a number of exciting new apprenticeships for specific industries. Most importantly, we are still helping our apprentices and clients to #DoAwesome.
