London Growth Boroughs 2015-18 Convergence Strategy

    Towards the end of 2014, Shared Intelligence worked with the London Growth Boroughs to identify opportunities for further collaboration on skills and employment to feed in to development of the next Growth Boroughs Convergence Strategy 2015 – 2018.

    The population of Greater London has hit 8.6 million. The last time London was that big was 1939. The current wave of growth is projected to continue until London has over 10 million residents. Where will all the new people and businesses be accommodated? The short answer is that much of it will be in the East of London, in the six Growth Boroughs. A more challenging question is what needs to happen to ensure that Growth Borough residents benefit from the new opportunities brought by growth? Specifically, how can the Growth Boroughs, skills sector and employers work together to ensure borough residents have the skills and employment support they need?

    This was the question Shared Intelligence was asked to help the Growth Boroughs and their partners explore, as a building block for the next ‘Convergence’ strategy, the Growth Boroughs’ plan for closing the gap in performance and prospects between London’s wealthiest and poorest communities.
