MORE Olympic Park apprenticeships are to be made available to teenagers in the borough.
Greenwich and Woolwich MP Nick Raynsford welcomed the decision by The Olympic Delivery Authority to recruit apprentices into construction trades and security management positions.
The MP is encouraging constituents aged 16 to 19 to contact Greenwich Local Labour and Business (GLLaB) to take advantage of the opportunity.
He said: "As an Olympic borough, Greenwich's local economy is set to benefit from a significant boost that the 2012 Games will bring.
"At a time of economic difficulties, I particularly welcome the creation of employment and training opportunities. The apprenticeships on offer during the run-up to the games will ensure that hundreds of young people are given the chance to gain new skills and experiences that will prove invaluable in the employment world.
"Unlike in the 90s, when scores of young unemployed people were left to sink or swim, I am determined not to leave people by the wayside and will continue to back government's initiatives to provide training and apprenticeships to help young people out of work or education."
Eligible candidates must be Greenwich residents, aged 16 to 19, with a minimum grade-C at GCSE in maths and English. For details and to book a place on an assessment day, contact Jan or Jamie at GLLaB on 0208 3127960.
