Chamber of Commerce Business & Education Summit

2 October 2017

SJL represented at British Chamber of Commerce Business & Education Summit

Last week Mrs Honour-Jones, our Student Services Manager KS5, was invited to represent Secondary Schools in one of the panel discussions at the Business & Education Summit, hosted by the Chamber of Commerce in London.  Following the keynote address from Jeremy Corbin, Mrs Honour-Jones took part in the first panel discussion of the day which centred around the role Schools have in creating Business Leaders of the future.  The audience were interested to hear particularly about our Careers Day and how the work we undertake with employers helps develop entrepreneurial skills in our students.  The morning concluded with an address from the Secretary of State for Education, Justine Greening, on the morning when she announced more information concerning the introduction of T levels as a more vocational qualification for young people and enlisted the help of employers to support these qualifications with practical work placements.
