Executive summary

London’s business sector recognises it has a significant role to play in addressing the gap between schools and employers. This approval will enable the GLA to progress the London Ambitions website project that will facilitate collaboration across the sectors. The objective is to simplify the engagement between the education and business sectors to ensure London’s young people are better prepared for the world of work.

The London Ambitions website will create an online hub to host careers education programmes and materials, and to facilitate access to work experience, internship and apprenticeship opportunities provided by London’s businesses.
