Learning and entrepreneurship is at the heart of the Royal Docks growth agenda

Building on excellent education and industry links, the Royal Docks team is investing in an ambitious skills and employment programme to ensure that local people have the best chance to benefit from the thousands of jobs that are being created in the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone.

Diversity powers London's economy; new perspectives, ideas, skills, and international networks drive innovation. Newham is one of the youngest and most ethnically diverse boroughs in the UK. At the heart of plans for the Royal Docks are initiatives that will support residents and businesses to achieve and excel. Creating these opportunities will support the economic potential of the area and support more diverse businesses and places of work.
