The target of 4,000 was set for other public sector bodies across London and will be delivered and reported separately. The ODA committed to 2,250 training opportunities including work placements and apprentices and offered in excess of 3,100 opportunities through the skills and training at the National Skills Academy for Construction. In January 2009 the ODA announced that it would be committing its contractors and supply-chain companies to securing 350 apprenticeships on the Olympic Park. There have now been over 400 apprentices experiencing work on the Park. LOCOG committed to offering young people opportunities to gain new skills and experiences. The main contractors who will be requiring significant numbers of additional Games-time staff are working with colleges and local brokerages to enable local people to apply for employment. The colleges and brokerages have also sought to identify training needed to enable local people to access opportunities in contractor workforces. Approximately 6,000 people from the Host Boroughs and 12,000 from London as a whole have been offered temporary Games-time employment as part of the contractor workforce. Complete

Once they have determined the make up of their Games time workforce, the skills required and begun to bring their main contractors on board we will expect to see how they will effectively utilise apprenticeships to help meet their requirements.

The 4,000 target is set for other public sector bodies across London and will be delivered and reported separately. The ODA has committed to 2,250 apprenticeship opportunities, including the announcement in April 09, that it would be committing its contractors and supply-chain companies to securing 350 apprenticeships on the Olympic Park. The London 2012 Apprenticeship Delivery Plan was published in May. Each contractor is contractually obliged to deliver a proportion of this target and that 3% of their workforce is apprentices. They have been supported by the ODA establishing a bespoke London 2012 Apprenticeship Hub on the Olympic Park site. This is a building on the site exclusively for the use of apprentices that includes facilities such as IT workstations, etc. Work has also begun on developing additional personal development programmes solely for apprentices working across the site LOCOG is committed to offering young people opportunities to gain new skills and experiences. Once they have determined the make up of their Games time workforce and the skills required they will consider how they can effectively utilise apprenticeships to meet their requirements.
