As announced on 29 June by Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, LMP has been awarded a Mayor’s Skills Academies Quality Mark for its provision within the digital sector.
The Mayor’s Academies Programme (MAP) Quality Mark identifies and recognises high-quality skills training providers in London that are responding to the needs of employers in priority sectors.
The Quality Mark aims to set a high bar for skills training that responds to the needs of sectors key to London’s recovery. It also enables learners to seek out excellent, industry-relevant skills provision across the city. This is key to the Mayor’s mission to build a fairer and more prosperous London for everyone.
To successfully achieve the MAP Quality Mark, training providers must demonstrate for their chosen sector(s):
- how skills training provision is industry-relevant, helping to tackle skills shortages;
- the strength of employer links, including specific engagement with SMEs, where relevant;
- how activities promote and support the creation of good work opportunities, particularly for underrepresented groups;
- evidence of positive learner journeys and destinations, and how effective Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) supports this process;
- evidence of existing markers of quality in skills provision, e.g. sector kitemarks and relevant assessments.
Co-Founder and Director, Amy Lalla, commented ‘We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of the quality of our provision within the ever-growing digital sector. LMP is committed to creating inspirational journeys and delivering excellence in learning, and we strive to deliver exceptional customer service and quality of experience in our apprenticeships and training.’
