Skills pledge breaks 4 million barrier


Transport for London (TfL) has become the latest organisation to sign up to the government’s skills pledge – pushing the number of employees covered through the four million barrier.

The organisation has committed to giving every one of its 20,000 employees access to high quality training, to develop their skills and work towards a qualification. Nearly four thousand employers across the country have now made the pledge to enable their employees to work towards the equivalent of five good GCSEs.

Skills minister David Lammy said: “Through the Skills Pledge, TfL underlines its commitment to ensuring all its staff have the opportunity to access new training which is relevant to their jobs and particularly important in the run-up to the 2012 Games.

“Every employee has the potential to contribute to business performance and improve standards of customer service, but this potential can only be unlocked if every employee can access high-quality training.”

Peter Brown, TfL chief operating officer for streets, said: “Transport for London is committed to working with its staff to ensure they have the skills and ability to deliver our substantial infrastructure development programme, including the modernisation of the tube, preparations for the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic games and crossrail.

“This must all be achieved while continuing to carry over 27 million passenger journeys daily on rail, DLR, bus and across London’s major road network.

“Successful recruitment, skills training and apprenticeship programmes are helping to maintain TfL’s outstanding record of consistently delivering major projects on time and budget.”
