Were the hubs launched in January as planned? If not when are they expected to be launched and what is in place to ensure there is no further delay to them?

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 to support Londoners most affected by the pandemic into good work. The creative, digital, health, hospitality and green hubs were launched by the Mayor on 31 January 2022. Subsequently, 22 hubs progressed into grant in Q4 2021/22. A second round of hub funding, focussing on social care will be launched in early summer and go live in the autumn. To date there have been no delays to planned delivery.
