The 5% Club

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.
