Over the last year we have worked hard, in partnership with the National Apprenticeships Service, to achieve this challenging target. Through the London Enterprise Panel we have brought even more resources to support the London Apprenticeships campaign. I have also written to companies in the capital that have not previously taken on apprentices as well as a direct mail campaign to SMEs.
