In just about every sector of our economy there is a disconnect between the skills and careers that employers are looking for and the supply of young people.
At a time when digitalisation and decarbonisation are transforming the way we work, Growing Talent West Midlands brings employers and education partners together to show young people how they can access opportunity and be part of the solution.
Growing Talent West Midlands is a long-term partnership programme that develops and diversifies the talent pipeline for employers whilst levelling the playing field and enabling inclusive growth.
Collaborating with a range of private sector partners provides a unique opportunity to target activity and deliver impact where it is most needed to benefit the local economy, support industry and transform the career prospects of young people.

Growing Talent West Midlands is an exciting programme of activities that inspire and educate young people on the vast array of careers opportunities that the digitalisation and decarbonisation transformations will bring.
The year-round programme of activities educates and informs young people about the digital and green skills that will be essential in the future workforce. The programme is designed to have a tangible and long-lasting impact on young people, businesses, and the local economy by encouraging inclusive growth.
We’re delighted to partner with BDF to deliver careers activities to young people at secondary school level as part of BDF’s mission to make digital skills accessible to everyone in the West Midlands.
