Skills and Employment
We are committed to supporting the delivery of skills which enable Londoners to progress in learning and access the job opportunities available in the capital. This means supporting the delivery of high quality skills employers say they need, in buildings that are inspiring and fit-for-purpose and which reflect the environment and new ways of collaborating within industry’s workplaces.
In 2017 the Skills for Londoners Capital Investment Fund was launched with over £110m of LEAP funding for investment into estate and equipment for London's skills providers over four years. This aim of this fund is to:
Respond to current and future skills requirements of employers and learners, improve quality of provision and learner satisfaction, progression and success rates
Support increased levels of apprenticeship delivery and/or progression to the highest levels of vocational and technical study
Establish strong and innovative partnership with employers and local stakeholders
