What work have you undertaken to establish an annual London Skills Audit as recommended in the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (LCCI) 2020 manifesto?

My officers have already undertaken a significant amount of research to identify skills gaps in London; specifically the Skills for Londoners Strategy and our recent response to the Local Industrial Strategy are both underpinned by robust evidence bases which identify the characteristics and challenges of London’s labour market.

Regular business engagement via forums including the Skills for Londoners Board and Skills for Londoners Business Partnership ensures that skills policy is informed by the needs of industry. We will continue to work closely with London Councils and the Sub Regional Partnerships of boroughs to ensure that skills policy responds to local needs.
