What provision has been made for the all-age career offer that you mention in objective 1 of your Skills for Londoners Strategy and how much has this provision cost each year?

In 2018, to take forward my vision for an all-age careers offer as set out in the Skills for Londoners Strategy, I launched the Careers for Londoners Action Plan. This outlined a number of work streams to promote an improved offer for Londoners in need of better careers information, advice and guidance (IAG). Having secured £1 million through the Business Rates Retention Pilot to improve careers IAG, I have focused the majority of this spend to date on expanding the London Enterprise Advisor Network – to offer Enterprise Advisors to every state secondary school, Pupil Referral Unit and Further Education College in London - and the Workforce Integration Network, which is supporting young black men into living wage employment in London. I have also used it to promote construction careers by highlighting the work of my Construction Academy at Skills London, an annual event at the Excel exhibition centre, which is attended by over 34,000 Londoners, including year 11 students, teachers and parents.
