Workforce, Skills and Employment

Lead the development of a 'People Plan' for the Black Country to inspire, motivate and guide others to be active and support the development of sport

Workforce, skills and employment represents one of the key areas of focus for Active Black Country and it's partners. Over the next 2 years, Active Black Country will: 

  1. Ensure all ABC staff are 'people' led and embed high quality people development across all aspects of the local sector's work.
  2. Improve the access and opportunity to work within our sector to everyone.
  3. Build capacity across our local system through providing high quality co-ordination and support to develop a diverse workforce that is demand and employer led.
