London assembly for North East London — fighting your corner at City Hall

The Greater London Authority (GLA) is advertising for 14 exceptional young people to take on the role of being Apprentices over a 12-month period, starting in January 2014.

Applications close on Monday 21 October, and the assessment day will take place on Wednesday 20 November, with the interviews being held the day after on Thursday 21 November.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining members of the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) in the sun to tour the Olympic Park to see how things have progressed since the Olympics.

There is still much to be done, but, one year on from the Olympics, things are progressing very well. Programmes encouraging young people across London to engage in sport are developing well, particularly at the Copper Box Arena, and I’m delighted that access to the Park from my constituency in Hackney is being improved.

It was especially good to meet young apprentices who are benefiting from the LLDC’s work, and training in such things as Business Administration and Construction.

Together with my colleagues on the London Assembly’s Regeneration Committee, I will be watching progress with interest and making sure the programme continues to be scrutinised properly to ensure it is delivered.
