Tailor-made ways of improving London's careers service (London Assembly report)
Tailor-madeImproving adult careersservices in LondonAn Economy Committeeinvestigation into adult careersservices in the capital
1Careers information, advice and guidance should play a keyrole in addressing this issue.In London one in six jobs is unfilled because there is no-one withthe right skills to do the job.
2We set out a number of recommendations to a range oforganisations to improve careers services in the capital.Currently in London, adult careers services are falling shortwith providers facing obstacles that limit their impact.
3We want to see providers given the flexibility to offertailored support to these groups.There is currently a lack of tailored support, particularly forpeople over 50, parents, women and those in low paid work.
4 A lack of local up-to-date labour market information hamperscareers services in London currently.We suggest careers services should produce up-to-dateborough level market information on a monthly basis.
5We recommend the LEP and London government has aclear role to shape and monitor careers services in London.The Greater London Authority and London Enterprise Panel(LEP) are not sufficiently involved in shaping careers services.
