42Arch Apprentices, Code Kingdoms & OnSide Youth Zones

    In keeping with the Lord Mayor’s theme for this year 'Shaping Tomorrow’s City Today', Arch Apprentices, Code Kingdoms and OnSide Youth Zones present the Career Fair of The Future.

    With the rise of automation and AI, the nature of work is changing, and new educational opportunities and skills set are needed. To build the workforce of tomorrow, we need to start by equipping the children of today. Onside Youth Zones, Arch Apprentices and Code Kingdoms have joined forces to make this happen:

  • Arch Apprentices is an Ofsted 'Outstanding' Training Provider that helps people accelerate their careers through digital-first apprenticeship programmes.
  • Code Kingdoms gives kids the tools to code their own great games with Minecraft and Roblox
  • OnSide Youth Zones are safe and inspirational places for young people to spend their leisure time.


Arch Apprentices are here to offer young people the best start in their career. Whether they dream of being a marketing guru or business genius, a tech magician or HR extraordinaire, there is an exciting opportunity available to them.

Apprenticeships are a fantastic choice for young people who have an idea of the path they want to follow and the job it will lead them to. They offer the opportunity to fast-track their development and career, way ahead of their undergraduate peers, and earn a wage while doing so.

The opportunities available through an apprenticeship with Arch are endless. Work for world-class employers such as Coca-Cola, Sainsbury’s Argos, BT, Aegis, GSK, Unilever and many more. Or develop your skills with smaller enterprises and charities such as ZSL, Amnesty International and Prince’s Trust.

Arch Apprentices offer apprenticeships in digital, data, IT, HR, finance and management.

OnSide Youth Zones

Young people need our help now more than ever before. Whether it’s a lack of qualifications, or negative behaviour and attitudes, the current childhood crisis is real and well documented.

OnSide Youth Zones are designed to give young people aged 8–19 years old (25 for those with a disability) somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to in their leisure time; occupying their bodies and minds with fun activities, learning new skills and socialising in a safe, positive way.
