Birmingham Baccalaureate rolled out on 'wider scale'

Jane Harris, programme director for the Birmingham Baccalaureate said the award will be "rolled out on a wider scale" in 2014.

School children in the Midlands will begin learning how to cook the Birmingham Balti this month as part of the scheme. Ms Harris said:

We already have 10 schools on board and many others have shown support for the award. Putting curry on the curriculum is just the tip of the iceberg, we want school leavers to have a deeper understanding of their city and what employers in the region need.

The award will be rolled out on a wider scale in 2014 and we're confident that it will give young people born in Birmingham the skills to get the jobs available here in Birmingham right now and in the future.
