Education Leeds Social Enterprise Showcase day picture

I was privileged to be a judge at the Education Leeds Social Enterprise Day at Garforth Holiday Inn a couple of weeks ago. The Education Business Partnership do a great job helping young people think enterprising thoughts that turn into action.

I awarded Holley her ‘Entrepreneur of the year’ prize. She had achieved a lot with many challenges in her community arts project, and was a worthy and shocked winner of the big prize 🙂

A great day for the young people and me too.

EDUCATION BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP

Education Leeds EBP is supported by funding from Leeds Local Enterprise Growth Initiative and West Yorkshire Learning and Skills Council.  It works to create links between schools and businesses.

Employers have a vital part to play in preparing young people for future careers and to help them acquire general life skills. Education Leeds EBP creates opportunities for Employers to get involved with enterprise and other voluntary EBL activities in Leeds schools.

Our mission statement:  ‘Creative learning in a real context’

Throughout this work we aim to achieve the following:

Raise the aspiration and achievement of all young people enabling them to achieve their full potential

To develop skills for life, ensuring all young people are equiped to deal with the demands of the 21st century

Create opportunities for young people to apply skills in a work related context through the delivery and development of enterprise related resources and activities

Raise teacher understanding through staff CPD and work placements

To support schools, businesses and local communities in building and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with one another

To share best practise by promoting effective partnerships between schools, businesses and the local community throughout Leeds
