The C2S Work Placement Pledge enables employers to demonstrate their commitment to the value of providing effective and constructive work placements which enhance employability and life skills and create a positive impact in the community.

There is national recognition that we need to bridge the gap between employers and education ensuring that we better equip our future workforce with the skills required in modern day business, enabling us to future proof the success of our businesses.            

Organisations wishing to get involved will be promoted in all our marketing material and on our website. The website will provide parents, young people, schools, graduates and returners to work a central point to directly apply to those organisations that have made this Pledge. The University of Gloucestershire and The Growth Hub have confirmed their support and will promote this Pledge as they recognise the value in providing more exposure for young people to the opportunities in growing, successful businesses.

If you would like get involved, please download and complete the pledge certificate and instructions. Please add your logo and signature; amend/add to the commitment to suit your organisation and return to us. We will then confirm approval for the use of the Pledge Badge on your website and any publicity material and return your framed certificate for you to display. There is no cost involved in becoming part of this campaign.

Join other organisations that want to make a difference and be part of the solution by making your pledge to provide purposeful work experience, creating better informed work ready people with increased knowledge, positive attitude and an understanding of what good businesses need today.

All the events enable attendees to join in peer to peer discussions, learn about organisational challenges and reflect on specific elements of our own business in a safe and friendly environment. Many of my team members have attended the executive meetings and return to the workplace with new contacts, suggestions and recognition that we often face similar business challenges. As a leader I have built stronger working relationships across Gloucestershire businesses and participated in sharing insight".

Angela and Suzanne go out of their way to make you feel welcome and spend the time to understand deeply what you are trying to achieve so that they can connect you with the right people. If you're thinking of joining, don't think just do it! The return on investment is phenomenal and I should know, I'm an accountant!"
