London Skills For Growth
London Skills for Growth is a Charity with "skills" at its very heart.
The Charity was established to directly respond to the growing number of young people leaving school without the necessary skills to enter the world of work. Our aim is to support young people on their journey to employment and we do this in a number of ways.
We deliver education and training programmes across a range of areas for young people 16-18 and 19+, all of our programmes include exposure to work through work experience, employer visits or employer seminars or through full employment (Apprenticeships).
We help young people to deepen their understanding of what skills are required to survive in the current economy and most importantly to help them understand the behaviours employers expect when offering employment. We have presented a range of information about our organisation throughout this website and we hope you find what you require.
London Skills for Growth is part of the LSEC Group.
