    From the classroom to the boardroom

    Our voice of Buckinghamshire Business this week is:
    Sally Wells, Managing Director, Thomas Education.

    On April 14th, Lord Young, the Prime Minister’s Adviser on Enterprise, brought together a group of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) at the Cabinet Office. The meeting was focused around the work Lord Young is doing to promote enterprise in young people, including the main recommendations within his report which is due to be published in the summer. What very quickly became clear is the vital need to identify how businesses can connect better with schools and how LEPs can aid this process in order to help young people to establish a defined career path when they leave school. In turn, this helps businesses recruit the brightest talent, ultimately bridging the gap between the world of education and the world of work.
