Tech talent on display at Digital Apprenticeship show
The council, in partnership with Ada, National College for Digital Skills, kicked off National Apprenticeship Week (March 5 to 9) with a showcase of some of the opportunities available in the digital sector, held at Ada’s campus in Tottenham Hale.
Top employers from around the country attended the event, with a wealth information about their apprenticeship schemes.
The highlight of the event was a panel discussion and Q&A facilitated by Ana Herrera, Director of HR and Careers for Ada and featuring representatives from apprenticeship employers IG, Deloitte, EY, and Google.
Cllr Joe Goldberg, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Social Inclusion and Sustainability, said:
“It was fantastic to be able to partner with Ada for this exciting event. There is a wealth of untapped digital talent in Haringey and events such as this show people what great opportunities are available to them. Hopefully there will be many more events which help to set young people in Haringey on the right path for top-flight careers in the digital sector.”
Amy Fowler, Head of External Relations at Ada said:
"We were excited to host this showcase for digital apprenticeships, bringing together fantastic industry partners with prospective apprentices from across London. At Ada we are passionate about exposing students to the broad range of careers and companies they could access with an apprenticeship and showing industry the immense benefit apprentices bring. We're proud to be at the forefront of connecting talented young people to great quality careers in the digital sector and events like this one for National Apprenticeship Week help demonstrate that commitment."
Gemma Donnely, Future Talent Manager at IG said:
"This is a great opportunity to showcase our business to people who will soon be taking their first steps into the technology sector. It offers us a chance to tell these people all about IG's apprentice scheme, and helps us shape the thinking of schools so that students are better informed about their options, with hopefully more schools and students considering apprenticeships as a route to a great career."
