Fifteen seeks candidates for apprenticeship scheme

Jamie Oliver's social enterprise wants charities to nominate disadvantaged young people

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's social enterprise Fifteen is asking charities to nominate disadvantaged young people to take part in an apprenticeship scheme at its London branch.

The year-long course, which takes on 18 young people every September, offers professional training and NVQ qualifications.

"We're interested in getting nominations from charities that work with disadvantaged youngsters, because they're in a particularly good position to identify promising candidates who could benefit from the Fifteen experience," a spokesman for Fifteen said.

Eligible young people must be aged between 18 and 24, living inside the M25 and not in employment, education or training when they apply.

The young people selected will work alongside professional chefs at Fifteen's flagship London restaurant.
