Yesterday events were held at several locations throughout the UK to celebrate the milestone.

Barclays Apprentice Programme was created in a bid to tackle youth unemployment and predominantly hired those not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET.)

Ashok Vaswani, Chief Executive of Barclays Retail and Business Banking met with over 100 Barclays apprentices in London and said: “As a bank one of the best investments you can make is in your people. We’ve given 500 young people that vital first opportunity to get into work, and will support a further 500 in the coming months.”
