The Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) has allocated £60,000 of funding for the new Ladder for Greater Birmingham programme.
Tim Pile, Chair of GBSLEP, said:
“One of GBSLEP’s key priorities is ensuring that we raise aspirations and promote opportunities for our young people by giving them the skills that industries need, driving economic growth throughout Greater Birmingham and Solihull.
“It is clear from similar Ladder programmes in neighbouring areas that this is a successful tool in offering people a path to a new start and real career progression. We urge firms and partners across the region to get in touch with us, and find out how they can support this campaign, and increase their own productivity and business performance.”
