Event description

Description

Following a successful joint ERSA / LVSC event in November with London’s Deputy Mayor for Skills, Jules Pipe, the two organisations are joining with the Learning & Work institute for a second event updating their members on the overall commissioning landscape for employment and skills provision in the capital, as well as highlighting opportunities and good-practice on working in partnership to deliver effective provision.

With the devolution of the Work and Health Programme to London, the government’s increasing focus on integrating support to engage those who have a disability and/or health condition, and changes in skills funding including the Apprenticeship Levy, this is an important time for ERSA and LVSC members to come together to discuss developments and opportunities.

At this free event, members will be:

  • Updated on the employment and skills policy and commissioning landscape in the capital.
  • Hearing about are the labour market needs for the capital.
  • Seeing some of the opportunities and good-practice for VCSE on working in partnership to deliver effective provision.

Who is it for?

This event is for all members of ERSA and LVSC who deliver employment support and skills provision in London.
