  2. Skills for Londoners Strategy…

    Leave a Comment

    The Mayor has consulted on his draft Skills for Londoners Strategy, which aims to:

    • Empower all Londoners to access the education and skills to participate in society and progress in education and in work;
    • Meet the needs of London’s economy and employers, now and in the future; and
    • Deliver a strategic city-wide technical skills and adult education offer.

    TAP welcomes the actions set out in the strategy, particularly the introduction of the Good Work Standard to promote investment in skills, workforce development and inclusive employment practices; the call to devolve the Apprenticeship Levy to create a Skills Levy for London; and the development of an all-age careers information, advice and guidance offer.

    The draft strategy is available here.

    You may like to know that Tower Hamlets are trying to make their streets nicer and greener. They are taking part in the ‘Great British Spring Clean’. Their Big Clean Up 3  is running from Mon 5 – Fri 9 March, to coincide with the national Keep Britain Tidy campaign.

    They are looking for support from community and corporate partners to run their own clean up initiatives, support theirs and help get the message out about the importance of keeping our streets clean and green.

     

    As part of this they are taking nominations of sites that need some extra TLC. If you see an area, on Tower Hamlets streets that needs some attention please email zoe@thealdgatepartnership.co.uk and communications@towerhamlets.gov.uk with the brief description of the TLC, address/post code, and a picture if possible of your site recommendations.  Get you nominations in by 2 February!
