Matters Arising

 

The Committee noted reference in the minutes to the letter sent out to local Academies, inviting them to put forward candidates for the Freedom. The vast majority of students were under 18 and therefore ineligible to receive the Freedom, and so other methods to encourage interest in the City of London amongst students would be explored. A report on City Apprenticeships had been requested for consideration at a future Committee meeting. Whilst there had been a limited number of responses to the letter, several nominations had been generated, including two nominations from the City of London School for Girls. Schools would be chased for any further nominations. The Clerk to the Chamberlain’s Court informed the Committee that Chief Officers had also been contacted to invite nominations.

 

A Member suggested forwarding the letter to Members who were also school Governors, and also to the Lord Mayor’s Cadets, who could be linked into the City Apprenticeships. Members discussed whether a more systematic approach for outreach departments should be considered, as there sometimes seemed to be a bias towards the artistic world in nominations for the Freedom. A Member suggested that the volunteering sector could be another source of nominations.
