Skills for Londoners Strategy…

The Mayor has consulted on his draft Skills for Londoners Strategy, which aims to:

  • Empower all Londoners to access the education and skills to participate in society and progress in education and in work;
  • Meet the needs of London’s economy and employers, now and in the future; and
  • Deliver a strategic city-wide technical skills and adult education offer.

TAP welcomes the actions set out in the strategy, particularly the introduction of the Good Work Standard to promote investment in skills, workforce development and inclusive employment practices; the call to devolve the Apprenticeship Levy to create a Skills Levy for London; and the development of an all-age careers information, advice and guidance offer.

The draft strategy is available here.
