London boroughs meet digital apprentices target

Councils in London have met their target of recruiting 100 digital apprentices by September 2020.

The goal to increase the digital talent pool in the capital was set by the London Office of Technology and Innovation (LOTI), a collaboration between London local authorities.

The roles include software development, data analysis and project management.

Eddie Copeland, director of LOTI, said: 'Technology and data are increasingly important to our lives, including the delivery of local public services. Digital apprenticeship programmes are key for boroughs boosting local digital skills and making the most out of technology and innovation.'

Philip Glanville, mayor of Hackney and London Councils’ digital champion, said: 'Digital apprenticeships are incredibly valuable for boroughs and our residents. They provide opportunities to break into a fast-growing industry, while working on council projects and services that benefit our communities.'
