Can London’s Construction Sector Improve Opportunities For Young Black Men?

                              

Free event on 10 April 2017

The Moving on Up programme aims to improve employment rates for young black men in London.

Research for this programme has found that:

  • In 2014/15, 1,300 people started construction apprenticeships in London. Of these, 80 were young black men.

  • More than 83,000 young black men live in London, they make up around 20% of all young men in the capital.

  • The unemployment rate for young black men is double the rate for young white men, even for those with the same level of qualifications.

  • White men in employment are three times more likely than black men to be working in London’s construction sector.

The Moving on Up partners are inviting construction and development employers to discuss practical ways of creating a level playing field for young black men to compete for employment opportunities in London’s competitive labour market.
