Answer for Tech.London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Tech.London website provides a dedicated portal for London's tech and startup community to access relevant tools and resources to support their businesses and enable them to grow.

With respect to jobs and apprenticeships; part of the website aggregates and lists tech sector job advertisements. This includes partnerships with community resources such as wearedotdotdot. The website also signposts the tech community to the GLA's apprenticeship resources which informs businesses of the benefits of taking on an apprentice. Furthermore, the website signposts interested parties to the GOV.UK apprenticeship resources which include information for both employers and individuals considering becoming an apprentice.
