The London Legacy Development Corporation has committed to provide hundreds of apprenticeship opportunities as work begins to create Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The first 30 places are already on offer through training provider Reds10.
The corporation has also ensured an apprenticeship legacy when the park reopens. More than 400 positions will come on stream over 10 years, from GLL, operator of the Copper Box and the Aquatics Centre, and from Balfour Beatty Workplace, operator of the ArcelorMittal Orbit and park maintenance.
Chief executive Dennis Hone outlined the opportunities at the London Assembly’s Budget and Performance Committee, along with a commitment to pay at least the London living wage for those employed on the park’s construction, operation and management.
Further apprenticeships will become available over the course of the transformation project through Legacy Corporation contractors including Balfour Beatty and Taylor Wimpey.
