Can you outline the full details of the Haringey 100 and Routes to Work programmes? How many people do you expect to reach and how will this help to address the higher unemployment rate that Tottenham residents face in Haringey?

As per my response to MQ 1812 / 2015, the programmes that you reference are part of a much wider investment designed to reduce unemployment in Tottenham and Haringey.               

Haringey 100 will encourage local employers to create 200 (100 per year) apprenticeship opportunities to residents in Tottenham. The project has employed a dedicated Apprenticeship Co-ordinator to work and support local employers. To date 119 employers have pledged to take on apprentices. 

Routes to Work will feature Tottenham residents who have started their careers in one of three ways; entry level, starting an apprenticeship or higher education. The purpose is to highlight what residents are already achieving, underline accessibility to the wider jobs market, and sign post residents to support on offer in Tottenham. 200 residents will receive advice and guidance and 50 of these will achieve formal qualifications.
