My new Careers Hubs are working with schools and colleges across London to improve understanding of T levels with the aim of increasing their uptake in the capital. This includes information webinars for career leaders and teachers, information for parents, and roundtables between employers and colleges.

Whilst I have no direct jurisdiction over T levels - which sits with the Department for Education - in terms of the wider skills landscape, the Local Skills Report for London is published annually by the Skills for Londoners Board (London’s Skills Advisory Panel) and provides London-wide stakeholders with a holistic view of learning and employer demand in the capital. The latest version of the Local Skills Report was published in March 2022 and highlights that London’s employers have significant requirements for higher level skills to maintain London’s position as a high-skilled economy and labour market.
