The Young People's Education and Skills Board which sits in London Councils is the lead strategic body for 14-19 education and training services in London and provides pan-London leadership for 14 to 19 education and training provision in relation to the current and future needs of learners and employers. It supports local authorities in undertaking their statutory functions, and assists other stakeholders in planning, policy and provision. The YPES Board is made up of key stakeholders and is chaired by the Executive Member for Children, Skills and Employment, Cllr Peter John, Leader of Southwark Council.
Young People's Education and Skills works for London's boroughs guiding and supporting them in their local commissioning. Working closely with the London Enterprise Panel (LEP), it brings together key stakeholders from across London to help deliver the region's priorities to influence and shape the learning provision on offer to young people.
Young People's Education and Skills wishes to poll London employers to find out how employers can be incentivised and helped to offer more work experience opportunities to young Londoners with the aim of supporting the latter to obtain jobs and thrive in the labour market.
