Secondary Schools & FE Providers
BPS Birmingham welcomes you to Professional Services Week.
Professional Services Week aims to provide a real-life insight into a growing sector that has plenty of prospects for future employment, with activities to help guide students to job prospects and employment routes.
“What are the Professional Services” you may ask?
For us, a professional service is a business whose main purpose is to support other businesses through providing specialist advice, knowledge and consultancy to help them achieve their business goals. In addition to providing things like financial services, legal advice or architectural designs to their clients, they of course have huge internal teams to ensure the firm’s smooth operation, including HR, marketing and administration and many more.
Here are our top 6 reasons, among many others, why we believe your school should be involved in Professional Services Week:

Is there a world of opportunity out there I don’t even know about?
We believe Birmingham’s Business and Professional Services will and should be a viable and exciting option to young people living and being educated in the city today. Here are our top 4 reasons why we think just that:
So it’s an exciting time to be a part of it and to ensure that young people educated in Birmingham are welcomed into Birmingham jobs.
