Future Proof Places

Over the next year, Business in the Community and the City & Guilds Group are bringing together business leaders in areas across England to kick start a series of conversations on how businesses can update employment for the next generation. 

We're working with local businesses and stakeholders to identify the key regional challenges around employing young people and make practical recommendations on how employers can overcome them.

A future proofed place means: a local skilled workforce prepared to meet the economic needs of the future, a seamless transition from school to work for all young people, and businesses engaged in every step of a young person's journey to employment.
