Through the Future Parks Accelerator, Birmingham City Council are looking for organisations to bring green sector jobs to life. The Skills Showcase is a chance for young people to learn all about the skills required and jobs available within parks, green spaces and the associated sectors including engineering, leisure, horticulture, business and more. This could involve opportunities in apprenticeships, work experience and volunteering. The council are looking for individuals to talk online with young people about these opportunities within their organisation, including training opportunities, apprenticeships, jobs and education courses. You’d spend 45-60 minutes and cover:
- Introduction and your background
- Why you love outdoor spaces
- What training/job opportunity/apprenticeship are available and what is involved?
- Case studies – what jobs and careers have people gone in to?
