Further to my response to MQ2017 /0697, the Channel 4 Knowledge documentary aired in April this year and was viewed by an estimated 1.4million people. This led to a 60-fold increase in visits to the Knowledge pages on the TfL website on the day of the documentary.

In addition, as part of my Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan, TfL is investigating whether the Knowledge can be established as a formal qualification, potentially enabling applicants to apply for study loans.
