Mayor pumps £82m into training up young Londoners to help them into employment

The Mayor has made an additional 82 million pounds available to help young Londoners get the skills and training they need.

The fund is aimed at those not in employment, education or training, as well as young offenders and will be used by colleges to improve facilities and equipment as well as increase opportunities.

Sadiq Khan says he wants the cash to bridge the skills gap that London will face as the UK leaves the EU.  Alison Arnaud is the Principal of New City College in Tower Hamlets.
