The MP for Tottenham visited a fashion academy which promises to help hundreds of teenagers find jobs.

David Lammy MP was given a tour of the ASOS Stitching Academy, in Hermitage Road, Harringay, on Friday last week.

The academy will give school leavers in the area the chance to learn the skills they need to start a fashion apprenticeship.

It was officially opened by the minister for employment Mark Hoban who said he was determined to give youngsters the help they need to kick-start their careers.

The college has been set up by the online clothes retailer ASOS and a local manufacturer Fashion Enter.

Jenny Holloway, managing director of Fashion Enter, said the academy could place Haringey at the heart of a ‘made in Britain’ revolution.
