GLA Mayor’s Academies Programs

I work for Capital City College Group on the Mayor’s Academies and the purpose of the academies is to support people getting into work through relevant training and support.  We work with many employers which enable us to arrange interviews for really jobs at the end of the course.

I understand that you support residents with gaining employment skills and a job.  I would be grateful for the opportunity to explore how Arneway and CCCG can work together to support your residents into employment. I would be happy to meet in person or equally arrange a Teams call, whichever works for you.

Here are some salient points for further information:

  • Capital City College Group are running Mayor’s Academies for Hospitality, Creative, Digital and Green
  • We cover more areas such as Health and Social Care, Security Industry Authority (SIA) and Employability training
  • Apprenticeships are available, and we are happy to discuss these further with you
  • As one of the capitals and the country’s largest college groups we have many campuses in London with the Hospitality being focused at Victoria
  • There is no cost to attendees or employers
  • The courses run for between 3-5 weeks
  • As part of the Mayor’s Academies the aim is that the positions would be at the minimum London living wage rate of £11.95 per hr and not a zero-hour contract
  • The aim from the GLA/Mayor is to help support London as we emerge from Covid
  • We can work with employers in delivering training that best suits
  • When learners finish their training, they will have a good grounding which will help in taking the next steps for their future
  • Potential career paths can be shown to aid learners to see a future path in an organisation
  • Learners will be offered an interview at the end of their learning for a really job and these often take place at one of our sites
