Based at the Custard Factory in Digbeth, young people and employers in the area will have the opportunity to access the college’s employment and assessment services more easily.
Hereward College currently delivers supported internships to Birmingham based residents through a very successful partnership with West Midlands Police. The supported interns take on a number of office-based roles resulting in permanent positions at the end of the programme.
Anthony Burnett, Assistant Director Diversity and Inclusion at West Midlands Police said: “It’s really important that we represent the communities we serve. Our partnership with the college helps us achieve that as well as tapping into students with amazing talent.”
Paul Cook, Principal & Chief Executive at Hereward College said: “We are delighted to be able to have a centre from which to support our Birmingham based students and partners. Through inclusive practice West Midlands Police have been able to bring the skills and expertise of our students to the fore.
“I would like to encourage more employers in the region to come on board and get involved in offering young people the opportunities they deserve.”
