Answer for Skills for Londoners

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Skills for Londoners will not be providing directly any careers advice.  However, it will develop a city-wide, strategic approach to skills and the commissioning of training provision that meets the needs of London's economy.  This approach will cover a range of areas including careers information, advice and guidance.  

As part of my wider skills devolution ask, I am calling for a strategic, coherent all-age careers offer, building on the young people's framework developed through London Ambitions.  My vision is for this offer to serve all Londoners, including those who are underemployed or who may wish to change their career.
