Mayor's Construction Academy Hub

Camden has established a construction skills ‘hub’ as part of the Mayor of London’s Construction Academy (MCA), in partnership with employers, training providers and 5 other local authorities. The MCA programme is the Mayor’s project to help more Londoners train in the skills they need to access construction-sector jobs. The North and Central MCA Hub covers the local authority areas of Camden, Islington, Brent, Hackney, Westminster and City of London.

Our hub aims to build an improved construction skills offer, by creating stronger networks between employers, training providers and organisations supporting people into work. We will review existing training, and work with providers to make sure it meets employers’ needs. We will work with employers to link up employment opportunities to training, and guarantee that they are accessible to everyone. We will also improve the sharing of employment and training opportunities across the area, and work together with our partners to better promote careers in construction.

For Employers
We’re keen to hear from employers about their skills needs, to help us improve the offer across our area. We want to create a skills system that is employer led, with training opportunities that link directly into employment. Get in touch to shape our training courses and access great candidates.


For Training Providers
With over twenty employers involved in large scaling construction projects already supporting our hub, we want to work with training providers to meet these employer skills needs. Working through our hub offers providers the chance to better coordinate your training and take advantage of opportunities to maximise funding.


For Candidates
Whether you’re just starting out in your career, or looking at retraining, our hub offers access to a wide range of training and employment opportunities to support you into a rewarding career in construction.
