The awards are part of our Ladder for Greater Birmingham campaign which launched last summer and is aiming to create 1,000 new apprenticeships in Birmingham and Solihull.

The Ladder initiative is run by community development group The Vine Trust and training provider Performance Through People with funding from the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP (GBSLEP) and Birmingham and Solihull Training Provider Network, with BirminghamLive as media partner.

It has already enjoyed successful campaigns in London, Staffordshire, the Black Country and Shropshire and is now creating new jobs and opportunities in Greater Birmingham.
