In my Skills for Londoners Strategy, I set out my vision for skills provision. I have taken this forward through the delegated Adult Education Budget and improving provision by drawing on results from the Skills for Londoners Framework consultation. Alongside the Adult Education Budget, I have invested in a number of major skills programmes. These include the Mayor’s Construction Academy, which equips Londoners with the skills they need to work in construction and my Apprenticeships for Londoners programme will generate over 1000 new apprenticeship opportunities. I am also calling for further skills devolution, as set out in my Call for Action last September. The London Health Care Vision launched last year supports integrated health provision and promotion in London. Partners include Public Health England, NHS England and London Councils. The report’s recommendation for a strategic body with more authority over healthcare provision in London would require government support.
