The 5% Club is Ten Years Young! 2013-2023


Our 10th Anniversary shows the relevance of the Charity, its continued and remarkable growth across its first decade, and the social impact being delivered across the “earn and learn” schemes delivered by a membership that now numbers over 820 Employer organisations, and is growing by over 25% each year.


Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP, Minister for Skills, Apprenticeships and Higher Education commented: “As Skills Minister, I am delighted that The 5% Club is celebrating its ten-year anniversary. Since its establishment, The Club has grown from strength to strength by inspiring employers across the country to create more earn and learn job opportunities, which enable people of all backgrounds to train, retrain and upskill. Such innovation is key to building a skilled workforce which meets the evolving demands of businesses, boosts our economy and drives growth.”

The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of employer-members working to create a shared prosperity across the UK by driving ‘earn and learn’ skills training opportunities.
