CWDC national programme activity in the West Midlands
CWDC are funding a number of national projects in the region. Information about some of these projects can be seen below.
The Workforce Strategy Partners Programme (WSPP) supports the involvement and engagement of the Third and Private Sectors in the development, implementation, delivery and review of local and regional integrated children's workforce strategies and their action plans.
Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs and Birmingham Association of Youth Clubs will use CWDC's Participation Fund to recruit and train young people to develop materials and training for other children and young people to be involved in workforce development. Two areas - one rural and one urban - will be involved.
The project will map current practice, develop induction and training materials and deliver training sessions, and a regional celebration event. More details can be found on the Participation Fund 2008 - 2009 page.
Applications are now being invited for Participation Fund 2009/2010 tenders, the deadline for this is 12 May 2009 at 13:00.
