ConstructionSkills will be publishing its Greater London Strategy later this year, which will include skills and employment programmes for the 2012 games and other major construction projects scheduled for the capital in the next five years.

In the meantime, ConstructionSkills is part of the partnership which is delivering the Employment and Skills Strategy launched by the Olympic Delivery Authority in February. The strategy sets out how the ODA will work with a range of public and private sector partners to help its contractors recruit the 9,000-10,000 construction workers that will be needed at peak in 2009-10 while at the same time helping people develop sustainable skills and a long term career path after the games.
