Employability in Birmingham

Female work placement student

Cadbury College is determined to help students reach their full potential. By introducing our new Pathways structure we are helping guide students into their desired career paths.

The Birmingham Skills Investment Plan (2016 to 2026) published an insight as to where Birmingham’s employment future is heading. One thing that was clear in the report was a “clear demand” for employees who have professional qualifications and the appropriate skills required. The investment plan recognises that there will be a need for 78,000 employees with A-Levels or equivalent qualification to ensure that the positions being filled for jobs are people that are highly qualified. It is predicted that there will be a shortage of high skilled workers for roles.

Employees need the right qualifications for entering employment or industries are constantly changing and evolving. Technology is a factor that constantly impacts industries but the requirements employers have also been constantly changing.
