Education

Education and training is key to unlocking our children’s potential. I believe in academic and vocational opportunities for all. I also believe we must have effective careers advice as part of our education offering, to give people the best start in life.

Schools & the Academic Path

The City has been evolving its education provision to support a wider range of schools and academies for more information on our Strategy to 2019 please read our strategy paper - http://democracy.cityoflondon.gov.uk/documents/s58071/Appendix%201%20-%20Proposed%20Education%20Strategy%202016%20-%202019.pdf

Apprenticeships

The City of London Apprenticeship programme provides a range of vocational opportunities for young people aged 16-24 living in and around the City.

Apprentices learn job-specific skills and gain valuable work experience while working alongside experienced staff. They also attend regular training days to gain relevant, nationally recognised qualifications. Plus, they earn a wage and get paid holidays, including bank holidays.

To be eligible for the programme, you must be:

  • Between 16-24 years old
  • Eligible to work in England
  • Not in full-time education or educated to level 4 or above
