The GBCC Growth Through People campaign aims to help local firms boost productivity through improved leadership and people management skills. Delivered by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce with a range of partners, it includes free training sessions, workshops and events alongside research and thought leadership content.
South and City College Birmingham is one of the largest general further education colleges in the country following its merger with Bournville College in 2017. The College delivers a wide variety of vocational and academic courses to young people and adults and offers full-time and part time courses, Apprenticeships and university level courses. The college has 8 campuses across Birmingham, all within easy access and with exceptional facilities. We are committed to ensuring students have the relevant skills, qualifications and experience required for their future careers, whether that is to seek employment or continue their education at college or university.
The college is actively involved with local businesses and has excellent links with industry. Our expertise and resources are valued by leading employers, public sector organisations and small and micro businesses from all sectors who we work closely with to recruit, retrain and upskill their workforce.
Growth Through People is an annual campaign from the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce. Our 2018 campaign took place between the 26th February and 23rd March 2018. Growth Through People will be back in early 2019. Until then we will continue to inspire and inform the business community with content and case studies from businesses committed to investing in leadership and people management skills. Watch this space.
“Now that I am aware of the campaign I cannot wait for the next ones - keep up the great work you are a fantastic network to be involved with - I have learnt so many new skills and met new contacts and leads through the networking”
