Ladder for Birmingham

BCTG is proud to be a supporter of Ladder For Birmingham.

The initiative is an ambitious campaign to create 1,000 new apprenticeships roles across the city and Solihull.

Birmingham Live has teamed up with community development group The Vine Trust who are part of the BCTG Group, to spearhead a campaign which is aiming to secure new futures for unemployed people across the two areas.  

Called Ladder for Greater Birmingham, it forms part of a wider campaign to create 10,000 across the country backed my major employers like HS2, Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Reach.  

 The initiative is appealing to all companies and organisations, from the smallest niche firms to the largest corporations, to get involved and give someone a new start and some real career prospects.  

But we are also calling out to young people and the unemployed to take this chance to learn a profession or trade and embark on a new chapter in their lives.

The Ladder will operate a hub supported by the local enterprise partnership, managing a hotline and website matching service, connecting potential apprentices with employers.
