This week is Youth Work Week, so we’re putting the spotlight on an amazing person who has committed to making a difference to the lives of young people in Manchester.
Since it began 12 years ago, the Make It campaign has inspired more than 70,000 students and schools – showing youngsters from a wide range of backgrounds what they can expect if they pursue a career in the world of manufacturing.
The Growth Company provide a number of food allergen awareness and good manufacturing safety courses to train employees and to be compliant with UK regulation.
In the 1950s our air was so badly polluted that when the smog came down you couldn’t see from one side of the street to the other, and cinemas had to close because patrons couldn’t not see the screen. Fast forward 65 years, and it’s all too easy to believe that air pollution is a thing of the past - if only that was the case.
This week is Get Online Week, which is the UK’s biggest digital inclusion campaign. Here at the Growth Company, we’re passionate about helping the people of Greater Manchester to boost their digital skills and feel more confident online. So, we jumped at the chance to get involved.
Today is World Mental Health Day, and the theme this year is ‘young people and mental health in a changing world’. To recognise this, we’re showcasing just some of the things we do here at the Growth Company to support our young learners who are on our traineeships, apprenticeships or study programmes.
A new report published today has found that too many people from disadvantaged backgrounds are still facing barriers that are preventing them from doing an apprenticeship. Here at the Growth Company, we’re proud to engage with some of the hardest-to-reach young people from Greater Manchester and beyond to help them find the right apprenticeship and boost their career prospects.
Today is World Teachers’ Day, so we’re putting the spotlight on one of our past students who’s now using his experience to inspire others.
