This seminar considered the future for skills policy in London and followed the publication of the Mayor’s Skills for Londoners strategy.
Delegates considered the potential challenges for implementing key measures from the strategy, exploring how London’s education and FE sectors can most effectively align skills provision with the requirements of growing sectors within London’s economy, including the impact of the Adult Education Budget moving towards an outcomes-based approach when it is devolved from 2019.
Further sessions considered what further action might be taken to create more high-quality apprenticeships - assessing the feasibility of the Mayor’s manifesto pledge to ring-fence the Apprenticeship Levy for London - as well as looking at the challenges for developing an all-ages career guidance offering and reaching those Londoners currently employed in insecure or low-paid forms of work.
The conference brought together policymakers with key stakeholders including representatives of employers and trade unions, schools, the FE Sector, training providers, local councils, lawyers, members of the HR profession, and reporters from the national and trade media.
