Nottingham is a city buzzing with culture, a huge music scene, and is a great place to shop!
However, it has well-documented issues with unemployment, with reports at the end of 2014 indicating that Nottingham had the highest proportion of workless households.
We may be able to combat unemployment with apprenticeships – apprenticeships will give you a well-supported route straight into work, as you’ll get paid on the job and earn the qualifications and experience needed to progress.
