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.
As an employer, it’s your responsibility to ensure that your staff aren’t left feeling stressed and overworked. A healthy work-life balance is vital for their health and wellbeing.
Here at the Growth Company, we’re proud of the difference our Digital 1000 initiative will make to the lives of older residents across the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester. One of the headline statements set out by the Mayor is to ‘create opportunities to maximise skills and experience of older workers’ – and Digital 1000 will help us to do just that.
I’m proud and excited to announce that today marks the start of the new contract for the delivery of the National Careers Service within the North West.
We are now accepting the entries for the Greater China Awards 2019, an opportunity to get the recognition you deserve for all your hard work with Greater China (mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) over the last year.
Today, the Chancellor announced plans to invest £125m into apprenticeships and new jobs within STEM industries. As I’ve highlighted previously, the science, technology, engineering and mathematics sectors are facing a growing skills gap, so it’s going to be a welcome boost that will help to create a strong workforce going forward.
Here at Challenge 4 Change, part of the Growth Company, we have people from all walks of life come through our doors on a daily basis – from groups of employees who want to work better as a team, to school children who are simply there for the fun. But perhaps one of the most important groups of people who we work with are vulnerable people who have either committed crime, or are at serious risk of doing so.
