Answer for London Growth Deal and Apprenticeships

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Through the Growth Deal, Government has committed to working with the London Enterprise Panel to ensure that national resources are assigned to and / or aligned with any investment made by the London Enterprise Panel on apprenticeships with the objective of creating a single and integrated skills employer offer for London focusing primarily on apprenticeships.

Any future LEP/ Mayoral funding on apprenticeships through the Growth Deal will be delivered in accordance with the Government's Statement on Apprenticeship Quality, which sets out the standards the Skills Funding Agency expects for the delivery of a high quality apprenticeship.
