South Yorkshire Talent Bank

Sheffield City Region and South Yorkshire Futures have launched the South Yorkshire “Talent Bank,” encouraging businesses and employees to volunteer their time, skills and experience to inform, support and inspire young people from across our region’s diverse communities.

The Talent Bank provides a range of high-quality engagement opportunities which volunteers can sign up to deliver in schools, colleges and training providers across South Yorkshire.

To find out more, tell us whether you’re an  Employee/Employer or Education Provider.

“I believe that it’s not just the responsibility of schools, colleges and universities to educate and inspire our young people, but it’s also the role of all of us in society – and that includes our businesses. Where you grow up shouldn’t determine where you end up. By connecting schools and colleges with appropriate volunteers and business leaders, we can create new opportunities, broaden horizons, and plant the seeds of ambition from which we can grow the workforce of the future.”

Why do we need a South Yorkshire Talent Bank?

The more employer encounters a young person has, the more they earn and the less likely they are to be not in employment, education or training (NEET)
Careers talks can motivate young people, inform their future plans and support academic attainment
Less than 60% of employers in England felt that education leavers were ready for work in 2016

To find out more about the research behind employer engagement, take a look at Education and Employers’ website.

The Education and Training Foundation are delivering a webinar and workshops to schools on T Levels. The Understanding T Levels CPD will aim to ensure that the workforce has information about T Levels so they a) understand the implications for their role and b) can advise students (including those with SEND) effectively about their options. Schools will be supported to increase their understanding of T Levels to ensure that teachers advising young people understand what T Levels are and what the potential benefits are.

You can find out further information, and book onto a workshop here.
