More than 40 apprentices for Redbridge Council took part in a series of events to gain insight into a range of sectors as part of National Apprenticeship Week.

The council held a number of online sessions, talks by employers and an Ask an Apprentice event run by New City College.

Apprentice manager Anthony Hartigan said he was delighted the week was a success and said it "demonstrates how the council invests in people and skills, particularly in these challenging times".

Sharn Cunningham, who works as a landlord and tenant project support officer, said her apprenticeship has been a challenging but rewarding experience and one in which she is constantly learning.

She said: "I would recommend looking at Redbridge's apprenticeship scheme to any school leaver especially those who believe university or college is not for them."
