The 5% Club

The 5% Club

The 5% Club Mission: To alleviate poverty by working with employers, policymakers and others to drive up the number, quality and range of earn & learn opportunities across the UK, benefiting businesses, individuals, the economy and society.

We do this through collaboration – leading, partnering and convening –

Leading thinking and stimulating debate among employers, policy makers and educators on skills, building the pipeline and developing a world-leading workforce including earn & learn.

Partnering with others on activities which meet the needs of different stakeholder groups, build the case for earn & learn and connect people with opportunities.

Convening employers, influencers and others to share experience and best practice, develop thinking and celebrate success around earn & learn careers and routes.

How we will measure success?

For individuals: more people from all backgrounds entering and completing high quality earn & learn opportunities.

For employers: a high-quality, diverse workforce with the skills to drive their organisations forward successfully.

For society: a more inclusive, fulfilled and robust social model. Earn and learn routes to employment regarded highly, with clear ‘parity of esteem’.

For policy-makers and the economy: a strong supply of appropriately skilled talent, with significant numbers coming via earn & learn.

For The 5% Club : a growing, increasingly diverse, number of organisations committed to earn & learn. A growing number of members aspiring to achieve at least 5% of their workforce in earn & learn within 5 years.

Social mobility and senior roles: why is it important?

14/11/2022

We were delighted to contribute to this article from d&i Leaders (Diversity and Inclusion Leaders), looking at why it’s important for social mobility that people don’t just ‘get in’ to organisations, but are also supported to ‘get on’ and progress in their careers.

Senior leaders from different socio-economic backgrounds have so much to offer organisations, and it’s great to see more and more people recognising the impact that diverse leadership can have.
