Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership
Supporting Young Peoples Choices for the Future.
The Black Country LEP recognises the importance of employer engagement with students, parents, careers leaders and teachers, especially now with the ever-changing world of work.  New technology is defining and creating many job roles while others have disappeared completely.  It is more important than ever to create a strong link between schools and businesses and to use employers to inspire young people to strive to be the best version of themselves.  The events hosted on our platform support schools to ensure Careers Professionals, School Leaders, Teachers, Parents and Students have a better understanding of current and future job roles in the Black Country across a wide sector spectrum.  Coupled with this we provide an excellent library of supporting resources available to all schools and colleges that showcase all pathways for young people. We also have a strong link between external organisations offering training and Apprenticeships across a variety of sectors, with many job roles some young people may not be aware of.
The Black Country Skills Factory and Careers Hub works with business and schools to link into the delivery of programmes co-funded by the Careers and Enterprise Company.  By accelerating the achievement of the 8 Gatsby benchmarks we can improve the careers provision turning ‘what looks good’ in careers education to what is excellent.
Schools engagement is a vital strand to the Skills Factory/Careers Hub.  Working with volunteers from the world of work, we work together directly with schools and college leaders to bridge the gap between employers ensuring young people get the best careers advice.
Under the following aims, the Skills Factory/Careers Hub works to change and enhance young peoples and employer’s perceptions of the workplace.
1.  We aim to increase the number of encounters every young person has with the world of work
2.  We strive to enhance each young persons employability
3.  We will provide schools with local labour market information to support curriculum delivery and development
4.  We aim to inspire the next generation to look forward to their future careers
