Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Mayoral team and I participated in a number of key events across the capital during National Apprenticeship Week 2015. I visited a successful apprenticeship employer in South West London, where I launched a £1.8 million scheme to create over 3,500 new apprenticeships. In addition, my Mayoral team spoke at and attended a number of events throughout the week, to raise awareness and encourage the take up of apprentices by London employers. Highlights from the programme of activities in London were supported with press releases, media articles and social media channels.
