The LEP's Skills and Employment Working Group (SEWG) has invited colleagues from both the GLA's Education and Youth team and the Young People's Employment and Skills Board, led by London Councils, to the Careers Service Workshop taking place on the 23rd September.  Invitees have now confirmed their attendance, and will join other key stakeholders in exploring ways to ensure the careers service in the capital allows all Londoners, including young people, to make informed choice about their future.
