Help the Ladder to grow

Kevin Davis, chairman of the Ladder Apprenticeship Foundation and lead for the Ladder for Greater Birmingham writes: Thank you for visiting the Ladder website. We hope you will help play your part to help more young people, employers and training providers to benefit from increase skills and careers opportunities in the UK’s second city.

The solutions to youth unemployment are of course complex, but as the Ladder, we believe it requires a collaborative joined up, systems-based approach to improving skills and enrichment opportunities for all, particularly for the young and disadvantaged communities, incentivising and equipping employers to hire and retain them. It’s about raising awareness, getting the data, so that all can make an informed decision about what to do next.
