Progress Made

Previous uncertainties over the funding of key skills and employment projects that will support London 2012 programme objectives on local employment and a diverse workforce have been resolved and good progress has been made with securing opportunities for local people to find Games-time employment. The LLDC has produced its employment and skills policy including a number of initiatives it hopes will extend and build upon the successful partnerships and approaches to jobs brokerages and skills development of the ODA and LOCOG. The policy recognises that the organisation will be monitored against a number of employment and inclusion goals, but it does not set overarching targets for these. We recognise that setting overarching targets is challenging as the range of contracts are diverse, we would expect the LLDC to continue to set its own lead by setting and publishing targets on a contract-by-contract basis.

There remain uncertainties over the funding of key skills and employment projects that will support London 2012 programme objectives on local employment and a diverse workforce. The risks to the programme objectives are being managed through contingency plans, which will need to be implemented for areas where funding is not continued. The Commission has recommended that the GLA Group resolve the issue of resources available to support key projects. There is the intent within the OPLC to ensure that local people are able to benefit from employment opportunities in legacy but this will be dependent on how their plans develop. Progress Made
