Projects with European Social Fund
The Business Elevator project is part- funded by the European Social Fund through the European Union.
The Business Elevator project provides support to small to medium sized local employers and micro businesses and is delivered through a partnership of Birmingham Metropolitan College, Solihull College and South and City College Birmingham.
Our aim is to help you take your business to the next level, by providing advice and practical support through bespoke service including:
- Training services
- Apprenticeship and recruitment services
- Business mentoring
- Networking opportunities
- Work experience or placements
- Other support services
We will undertake a comprehensive, no obligation organisation needs analysis to fully understand your business requirements and match you with suitable recruitment and training and services or try to find ways to develop your workforce by designing new programmes or preparing students to work in your industry.
Through our partnership with Solihull College and South and City College Birmingham, we will be able to identify the right service for you, whatever your organisational needs. The service is provided free of charge , but you must be a small to medium sized employer or micro business (between 1 and 249 employees), located in the Greater Birmingham & Solihull area, with a balance sheet of less than £36m and a turnover of less than £42m.
The information you give us will allow us to design future programmes to better prepare students for working in your industry, find you high quality apprenticeship candidates and support your business to maximise its potential.
We will also be able to provide you information about training services, work placements, apprenticeships and other local offers.
Our dedicated Employment Support Advisors will arrange to meet you and guide you through the process of finding the right service for you.
