Two 16-plus young people will be given the chance to work in a real paid PR job, with recognised training towards business administration NVQs at City and Islington College.

Young people can apply through the college and via the National Apprenticeships Service website (www.apprenticeships.org.uk).

Following successful completion of a level 2 apprenticeship, they will be able to follow a career path within the company while taking an advanced apprenticeship.

Minister for FE, skills, apprenticeships and consumer affairs Kevin Brennan said: ‘We’re delighted that Band & Brown is backing young Britain in actions as well as words.’
