National disability charity Sense have partnered with Severn Trent to host a two day Pan Disability Job Fair at the charity’s Birmingham centre, Sense TouchBase Pears. The event, which takes place on April 26 and 27, will bring together West Midlands based disabled job seekers with Disability Confident employers in a relaxed and accessible environment.

The Pan Disability Job Fair continues the charity’s important work in breaking down barriers to employment and supporting jobseekers with disabilities to live, earn and thrive.

B2B publisher Raconteur has launched the New Voices programme, a free initiative to help unpublished writers from underrepresented communities break into business journalism.

The 12-week course will be hosted virtually and can be slotted around existing commitments and work schedules. It is designed to find, train and nurture a new generation of business journalists from communities that are underrepresented in media - particularly business journalism.

Thousands of jobs at some of the UK’s biggest brands are available at the upcoming Birmingham Jobs Fair.

Taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 30th March) at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, the Birmingham Jobs Fair will give people the chance to meet employers face-to-face and potentially be interviewed for a role on the very same day. The event boasts over 80 stands with employers from major sectors across construction, health, transport, hospitality, retail, education, IT, and even the upcoming Commonwealth Games 2022.

All schools in England will have to open for at least 32.5 hours a week, under government plans due to be published this week. The length of the school day is currently decided by the headteacher with the governing body in England.

Some 70% of schools are already open between 32 and 35 hours a week, with a further 9% open for longer. The rule - which starts next September - will hit the 14% of schools thought to be open fewer than 32 hours a week.
