The Skills and Apprenticeship Hub is overseen by the Greater Birmingham Employment and Skills Board (ESB).
Directors of the Employment and Skills Board (ESB) are drawn from the private sector, local authorities, and universities, colleges and Independent Training Providers (ITP’s).
There are a total of 13 Directors: 6 from the business community, 3 from local authorities, 3 representing higher/further education. The ESB is business-led and business community representatives have been recruited with the aim of reflecting the geography of the area, different sizes and sectors of commerce and industry, and with due regard to the region’s diversity.
The ESB Board has signed up to a Code of Conduct, based on the Nolan Principles, which includes a clear procedure for registering and declaring interests. A link to Board Agenda and Minutes is shown below:
Scheme of publication
The ESB Board has agreed a scheme of publication which means that the agendas and papers of the Board, will be published 5 clear working days before the meeting takes place. The decisions & actions will be published within 10 clear working days of the meetings taking place. Any declarations of interest made at the meetings will be included in the decisions & actions.
ESB may, from time to time, exclude papers from the public domain where grounds exist under The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 and in particular under Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972. Where papers are excluded from publication, a cover report setting out the decision(s) to be taken and the grounds for exemption will be published, and a private paper will be circulated to the Board.
