The Mayor’s Academies Programme (MAP) is designed to help address skills shortages in sectors key to London’s recovery (creative, digital, green, health, social care and hospitality) and support Londoners most affected by the pandemic into good work. The hubs moved into grant in Q4 2021/22 and are in the process of recruiting key staff and starting delivery. The first reporting point will be after the end of Q1 2022/23 by which point we anticipate all hubs will be fully operational.
