LearnPlay Foundation, based within The Public, employ up to 200 local young apprentices. One of the reasons we chose The Public as a venue was because it was the only place in the Black Country that would directly allow our young people to work alongside internationally renowned artists and provide them with an aspirational pathway.
On 9 May 2013 Sandwell Council announced that they are talking to Sandwell College about turning The Public into a Sixth Form College. We the undersigned, want The Public to remain as a valuable community, cultural, digital and learning resource that everyone can use.
