Ladder for Greater Birmingham launches next phase of apprenticeship campaign
Initiative which first started in 2018 has secured a fresh round of funding to continue its programme of connecting employers with the next generation of apprentices.

A campaign launched to create new apprenticeships in Birmingham and Solihull has won a fresh round of funding to support a next phase of work aimed at creating new jobs in the city region.

The finance from Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) will see the Ladder for Greater Birmingham expand on its first two phases in terms of apprenticeship starts, progression onto higher levels and engaging with the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities and schools.

It will also continue to champion the annual apprenticeship awards, run in partnership with BirminghamLive.

Ladder for Greater Birmingham was created three years ago to showcase apprenticeships and connect individuals, employers and stakeholders, including providers of apprenticeships, to drive the model throughout Greater Birmingham.

It had an initial target of 1,000 new roles which it surpassed before being extended in 2020 since when it has created more than 500 further jobs via apprenticeships through its partners.
