The 5% Club
Our Mission: To alleviate poverty by working with employers, policymakers and others to drive up the number, quality and range of earn & learn opportunities across the UK, benefiting businesses, individuals, the economy and society.
We do this through collaboration – leading, partnering and convening –
Leading thinking and stimulating debate among employers, policy makers and educators on skills, building the pipeline and developing a world-leading workforce including earn & learn.
Partnering with others on activities which meet the needs of different stakeholder groups, build the case for earn & learn and connect people with opportunities.
Convening employers, influencers and others to share experience and best practice, develop thinking and celebrate success around earn & learn careers and routes.
How we will measure success?
For individuals: more people from all backgrounds entering and completing high quality earn & learn opportunities.
For employers: a high-quality, diverse workforce with the skills to drive their organisations forward successfully.
For society: a more inclusive, fulfilled and robust social model. Earn and learn routes to employment regarded highly, with clear ‘parity of esteem’.
For policy-makers and the economy: a strong supply of appropriately skilled talent, with significant numbers coming via earn & learn.
For The 5% Club : a growing, increasingly diverse, number of organisations committed to earn & learn. A growing number of members aspiring to achieve at least 5% of their workforce in earn & learn within 5 years.https://www.5percentclub.org.uk/
