Mayor's Construction Academy hub stakeholder networking event
Jules Pipe (Deputy Mayor, Planning, Regeneration and Skills) launched the Mayor’s Construction Academy (MCA) hubs on Friday 25 January 2019 at an event that took place in London’s Living Room at City Hall, and which was attended by representatives of the seven hubs as well as key industry stakeholders.
At the event seven hubs were confirmed led by stakeholders from further education, higher education and local government. These hubs will see better working between training providers delivering the right skills to meet demand, and housebuilding employers with vacancies to fill. Organisations successfully appointed as hub leads will have access to revenue funding to ensure they can do this effectively.
There is a great mix of organisations now involved with the hubs – including large employers, SMEs, FE providers, independent providers, universities, trade bodies, local authorities and employment brokerages. All these organisations share the common goal of helping Londoners to develop the skills they need to tackle the city’s housing crisis.
