Answered By: 
The Mayor

Unlike the National Careers Service (NCS) site, the London Ambitions portal will be designed for teachers in schools, colleges and businesses only. It will also provide opportunities from primary school onwards (to the age of 19), unlike the NCS offer, which provides a limited offer to young people at secondary school, through to adults.

London Ambitions will streamline the careers education, work experience and internship offers available to ensure better access for schools and colleges, and allow businesses to connect with careers leads.
