Today, The Mayor announced a new Skills for Londoners Strategy 2018.

The document sets out the Mayor's plans to create a post-16 technical and vocational education and skills system that meets the needs of Londoners and businesses.

Skills for Londoners is the first post-16 skills and adult education strategy produced by a London Mayor. It sets out the contextual skills challenges London faces, along with the priorities and actions required to make the London skills system the envy of the world and achieve the Mayor's vision for:

'A City for all Londoners - making sure Londoners, employers and businesses get the skills they need to succeed in a fair, inclusive society and thriving economy.'

There are three key priorities at the heart of the strategy:

1. empower all Londoners to access the education and skills to participate in society and progress in education and work

2. meet the needs of London's economy and employers now and in the future

3. deliver a strategic city-wide technical skills and adult education offer

Alongside this strategy the Mayor has produced his Skills for Londoners (SfL) framework. This will set out the desired outcomes and delivery approach for the devolved Adult Education Budget, European Social Fund, Skills for Londoners Capital Fund and other City Hall programmes in more detail. This framework will be published for consultation in June 2018.
