Growing Talent #BPFS
The Business, Professional, Financial and Services sector is forecast to double GVA across the West Midlands Combined Authority over the next 12 years, however its growth potential risks being undermined by inability to access the necessary workforce and skills base.
A focused and co-ordinated approach is required right now to interest and motivate young people in opportunities within the sector. This sector creates high quality career opportunities and there is work to be done to ensure that all young people can access these careers regardless of gender, social background or ethnicity.
Growing Talent #BPFS is a new programme led by social enterprise Ahead Partnership supported by funding from Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP, BPS Birmingham and private sector employers. It builds on four successful years of activity delivered in Birmingham during Professional Services Week, extending this into a year-round programme of careers and skills activity led by BPFS employers in Birmingham and Solihull. You can read the results of previous Birmingham Professional Services Week here >>
Growing Talent in #BPFS launches in October 2020 and there is a range of ways to get involved.
How will it work?
There are opportunities for everyone to get involved regardless of the size of organisation. Given the restrictions in schools and colleges following the Covid-19 pandemic, this new initiative will include a range of innovative and diverse activities that have already been piloted and are guaranteed to reach and inspire young people across the region.
You can take part in activities such as virtual workplace visits and sector careers panels as well as creating engaging video resources that show the sector in action. All the activities in the programme are guided by Ahead Partnership with support and resources to help volunteers from your organisation get involved.
The programme will take on the effort of dealing with schools, creating and designing activities and dealing with the organisation and administration. This means that employers can put all their effort into making their activity with young people fun, exciting and rewarding.
The programme will launch in October 2020 and we invite employers of all sizes from these sectors to get involved.
