Volunteering empowers and has mutual benefits.  Volunteers can enable young people.. our future workforce… to make informed choices about their career pathways and develop skills to give them the ability to benefit themselves in the workplace, or life in general.

SBCP, along with our members, is working to develop local future talent.  You will hear from two of our members about the valuable work that they do to develop young people:

–  SEGRO Plc who works in partnership to deliver tangible and positive impacts for the communities and local residents, specifically with employment.

–  Learning To Work who create high impact activities with local employers to inspire young people, educate them about opportunities and give them the skills they need to be successful.

“The UK is facing a skills emergency. Weaknesses in supporting young people into the labour market have existed for years, but the changing nature of jobs and skill needs have turned the situation critical”. (Source: Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General December 2018).  The CBI will be campaigning for reformed careers advice in schools and to ensure every young person gets quality guidance and at least 4 interactions with working life by the age of 16, in every nation of the UK.

The event is FREE to SBCP paid members/charities and only £25.00 to non-members.
