City of London Education Strategy
The City of London Corporation and its Family of Schools are committed to delivering world-class education based on a broad and balanced approach to develop the whole child and create a lifelong love of learning.
In July 2018, the Education Board approved three new strategies for 2019-2023.
The three Strategies have been summarised into a short summary booklet. The Education, Cultural and Creative Learning and Skills Strategies Overview.
The Education Strategy 2019-2023 focuses on ensuring that pupils in the Family of Schools have access to transformative and inclusive education which enables them to flourish and to reach their potential. It commits to enabling pupils to develop their skills and have high quality exposure to the world of work at all stages of education.
The Cultural and Creative Learning Strategy 2019-2023 commits to enabling all pupils to enrich their education through high quality and systematic access to the City's cultural, heritage and environmental assets.
The Skills Strategy 2019-2023 represents the Corporation's commitment to enable lifelong learning, supporting citizens to reach their full potential and contribute to a diverse workforce. This strategy includes the Corporation's commitment to developing the employability of those furthest from the labour market through adult learning, training and apprenticeships.
To support the delivery of these three strategies, and learn more about Fusion Skills, the City Corporation commissioned Nesta to run an exploratory survey-based research project with 101 UK employers. Our aim was to learn about the value which employers place on skills in the workplace, which skills they look for and the evidence they use to identify these skills during the recruitment process.
