The number of online apprenticeship vacancies in Havering has almost doubled in the last year, new figures from the National Apprenticeship Service show.

One hundred and thirty-five vacancies were advertised at apprenticeships.co.uk in Havering between February and March – compared with 70 in the same period last year.

That’s the third-biggest percentage increase in London.

Demand is high, with about 13 applicants for every apprenticeship position in the borough – but that still makes it the fifth easiest place to get an apprenticeship in London. In Waltham Forest there are about 32 applicants for every place.
