The £1.8m apprenticeship funding will be used for the purposes of an Employer-Led Apprenticeship Creation Programme to deliver new apprenticeship starts in London.

The programme is funding organisations to engage new employers to take on apprentices and take them through the entire process of selecting a provider, recruiting apprentice candidates and supporting them through their apprenticeship.  

Following a competitive process, the GLA has identified seven organisations that will benefit from grant funding.
