Question

According to your answer to question 3498/2012, the number of apprenticeships in the GLA group taken up by people aged 16-24 dropped to 175 in 2011-12 from 438 in the previous year, and only comprised 20% of all apprenticeships in the group. You have previously assured the Assembly that you would ensure young people got more apprenticeship opportunities (question 3732/2011). What extra steps are you taking to make good on this promise?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am delighted that City Hall has just recruited 16 new young apprentices. I will publish the full breakdown for 2012/13 of the ages of apprenticeships generated within the GLA Group in April 2013. I continue to work hard with the National Apprenticeships Service to promote apprenticeships to employers - particularly for those aged 16-24.
