Notice Abstract

Inspiration 2022: sport, leisure and creative skills provision in Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP area (OC12S19P1444) Call to run a project to support unemployed people and inactive residents to move closer to employment through participation in sports coaching and leadership, leisure, creative skills, volunteering, stewarding and marshalling in the GBSLEP area. This call is for the More Developed region (made up of Birmingham, Solihull, Redditch, Bromsgrove and Wyre Forest). This call aims to address unemployment barriers and basic skills needs (required by employers, such as IT, literacy and numeracy). The 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held in and around the city of Birmingham and will be a key sector in enabling and driving economic growth in the GBSLEP area. This call activity will support unemployed people and encourage inactive residents to move closer to employment through participation in sports coaching and leadership, leisure and creative skills, as well as volunteering, stewarding and marshalling; thereby increasing the confidence, skills and employability of participants and empowering them to take full advantage of employment opportunities created before, during and after the games. Note activity to support young people NEETs (aged 16-29) has been targeted in the ESF call for the GBSLEP Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) and the ESF call for NEETs and at risk of NEETs. Support for young people in any proposals responding to this call should be therefore targeted at non-NEETs. The preference is to award large funding agreements covering a range of activities. Applicants can collaborate where appropriate to achieve synergy of operation and to avoid duplication across similar areas in the LEP geography. The call is seeking project proposals that focus on one or more of the following areas of work: The aim of this programme is to encourage growth and participation in the sports and leisure and creative skills sectors through the development and expansion of an appropriately skilled workforce. This will allow the industry to respond to future business opportunities and major developments as they arise, as well as encouraging unemployed and inactive residents to consider the employment opportunities created by the 2022 Commonwealth Games and its’ legacy.
