The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of employers committed to earn & learn as part of building and developing the workforce they need as part of a socially mobile, prosperous and cohesive nation. The Club exists to help its members and all employers increase further the number, quality and range of earn & learn opportunities across the UK.
By joining The 5% Club, members aspire to achieve 5% of their workforce in earn and learn positions (including apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formalised training schemes) within five years of joining.
We now represent:
More than 900 organisations across the UK – all committed to providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities for their workforce.
Our members collectively employ:
- More than 1.6 million employees
- 76,000 apprentices
- 17,000 people on graduate programmes
- 8,000 sponsored students
This means more than 101,000 people in the workplace have been given skills based training opportunities by our members – averaging more than 6% across our movement.
