Work & Learning

There are many different types of employers in Brent, offering a wide range of potential jobs for young people. It is important before you begin looking for a job, to consider what your interests are and what type of occupation would suit you. It is worth investigating which qualifications are needed to enter different careers. In some jobs, such as apprenticeships, you can acquire qualifications as you work.

There are two universities within or near Brent (UCFB & Westminster) and many more within London. Locally, the College of North West London, school sixth forms and training providers offer a wide range of courses and opportunities.

Brent Works is a free service for young people aged 16+, providing job and apprenticeship opportunities for local people in a variety of occupations, including construction.

More events and opportunities for young people will soon be available via Slenky's Brent hub.  Find out more about Slenky

The annual Connexions 'What's Next' event takes place in March every year at Brent Civic Centre for 16-19 year olds (up to 25 with SEND) looking for training, employment, apprenticeship, college or university opportunities. There is also a The Jobs Show at Wembley Stadium scheduled every year.
