How will the Mayor use the Adult Education Budget to ensure girls and students from BAME backgrounds have appropriate access to training and education in STEM subjects?

My Skills for Londoners Innovation Fund is – amongst other things - supporting providers to deliver education and training focused on upskilling those groups—including young people, disabled adults, Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups and women—disproportionately under-represented in London’s STEM industries.

We will continue to look at how the Adult Education Budget can be used in London to support more women and Londoners from BAME backgrounds to access training and education in STEM subjects.

My Digital Talent Programme and Mayor’s Construction Academy are also targeted at helping more young women and those from BAME groups develop the skills to work in technical occupations and the construction sector.
