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.https://www.5percentclub.org.uk/

Employers play a key role in #socialmobility outcomes for many.
They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.
However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.
That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
