This Business Class Breakfast aims to showcase an Employability Event taking place at Abbeywood Community School.
Please join Business in the Community and other local business leaders to hear more about the expansion of BITC's flagship Education programme in Bristol. Business Class provides a systematic framework for business to support young people facing social disadvantage by forming long-term partnerships with the schools those young people attend. We believe that these partnerships are one of the most effective ways for business to support young people. The Business Class framework is designed to develop partnerships that are rooted in the needs of the school and underpinned by strategic support and collaborative action.
There are currently over 350 Business Class partnerships across the UK. Our goal is to create 500 strategic partnerships between businesses and some of the country's most challenging schools by 2015 to help over 75,000 young people build successful working lives with the support of companies across the UK led by our National Champions: Wates, BP, Goldman Sachs, UBS and KPMG.
Business in the Community is expanding the number of partnerships it has in the Bristol area with the aim of having 10 by the summer of 2014, thus supporting even more disadvantaged students.
We are hosting a Breakfast event where you can see and hear first hand what benefits the schools and businesses get from engaging in the programme. An Employability Event is taking place at Abbeywood School with support from local businesses and we would be delighted if you would like to come along and see what a difference these types of activities can make. You will meet the Education Manager and have the opportunity of meeting some students and teachers.
