"London First’s assistance in running a mentoring scheme for senior police and business leaders to help achieve this helps us create a safer and stronger London"
Commissioner, Metropolitan Police
Despite its overall prosperity, London’s unemployment rate is one of the highest in the UK – and has been consistently so since the early 1990s.
Skills provision in London needs more direction from the Mayor, stronger business leadership and accountability if arrangements are to serve the needs of the capital in an environment of increasing global competitiveness.
London First aims to:
- Ensure London’s workforce is appropriately skilled to compete for the jobs available
- Equip the capital with a high quality workforce that benefits a world city
- Persuade policymakers to refocus skills provision so that training is better matched to London employers’ needs
