MHA+ Skills Community

MHA+ Skills Community includes framework suppliers, member authorities, consultants and professional bodies working together to address the need for skills across the industry.

Launched in October 2010 as the MHA Skills Academy, it extended its remit to build capacity and capability for MHA+ skills and workforce development – reinforcing the culture of collaboration between all MHA+ partners.

The MHA+ skills and development community has a wide ranging remit including:

  1. A Learning Management System (LMS) – including construction/highways learning and development; leadership and managerial level learning, training and development opportunities.
  2. Engagement – We support community and school based projects including the ‘Bridge to Schools’ programme in association with ICE and the MHA Framework contractors.
  3. Learning, training and development, in conjunction with partners –  Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Transport Planning Society (TPS)
  4. STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassador support

Framework suppliers, MHA+ member authorities, professional services consultants and professional bodies are working together developing training and skills development opportunities for their staff, the supply chain and the local community. We have a MHA+ learning and development policy – to ensure equity and delivery efficiencies in provision
