This video from Southwark Council uses school leavers Pat and Kevin to demonstrate the council's plans for combating the 40% unemployment rate in the borough.

If you're a school leaver or parent of a school leaver, we've got everything you need to know about apprenticeships and traineeships. Apprenticeships and Traineeships are jobs where you learn skills as you work, undertake formal study with a training provider and get paid a training wage.

Speaking during the thanks giving ceremony at Kapsoya Church of God, Mr. Bernard Silas who recently graduated from University of Nairobi said school leavers should use the knowledge and skills gained to venture into relevant projects. Mr Silas added, the act will avoid engaging themselves in evil habits that may make their education a waste. Bishop Bringo Amkuhuma of Kapsoya Church of God Eldoret said parents have shown laxity, a move that have largely contributed to an increase in number of youths engaging in bad behaviour.
