To solve the skill shortages, London First is proposing a plan for London which includes:
•Embedding transferable skills such as digital and employability into secondary education as compulsory subjects.
•Devolving more control over skills funding and policy to a London-level business led-decision making model of skills provision.
•Growing Skills London – the UK’s largest jobs and skills event – by creating an online platform to help students and parents gain better access to the skills and work experience programmes business has to offer.
•Business working with schools to deliver up-to-date digital skills.
