Who we are, YPES Board and sub-groups

Young People's Education and Skills (YPES) provides pan-London leadership for 14 to 19 education and training provision in relation to the current and future needs of learners and employers, supports local authorities in undertaking their statutory functions, and assists other stakeholders in planning, policy and provision. The YPES Board, made up of key stakeholders and chaired by the Executive Member for Skills and Employment, is the lead strategic body for 14 to 19 education and training services in London.

YPES works for London's boroughs, guiding and supporting them in their local commissioning, bringing together key stakeholders from across London to help deliver the region's priorities to influence and shape the learning provision on offer to young people.
