The MCA-LSBU hub is a partnership of south London boroughs (Lambeth, Lewisham & Southwark) and LSBU, Lambeth College, the Skills Centre, South Thames College and Lewisham Construction Hub. Together with developers, contractors, construction SMEs and schools, we aim to work collaboratively to connect the dots and assist both employers and those wanting to work in the construction sector.
Establish a world class construction skills programme that focuses on local tri-borough (Lambeth, Lewisham & Southwark) employers offering talent progression from schools to higher degree apprenticeships.

Partnered with Naturally Talented Me (NTM), an online platform that can change the way we recruit by focussing on natural attributes such as reliability, teamworking and problem solving rather than qualifications and experience. Watch a short video of why we are partnering with NTM.
