GMLPF are delighted to be sponsoring the Career Inspiration Award for a third year at Educate Awards 2015. The award recognises schools which have adopted the most innovative approach to careers information, advice and guidance for their pupils. GMLPF CEO, James Glendenning, presented last year’s winner, Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, with the award at Liverpool Cathedral in November (pictured above).
Now in to its fourth year, the Educate Awards are growing due to the volume of entries and increased demand from schools to take part and win one of the prestigious education accolades. The Educate Awards are now accepting entries from schools in the boroughs of Lancashire, West Lancashire and Cheshire West and Chester, in addition to schools in the Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Sefton, Knowsley, Wirral, St Helens and Halton).
Commitment to schools
Since his appointment 18 months ago, James Glendenning has stepped up GMLPF’s commitment to helping schools raising awareness of Apprenticeships as a career option. He explains the decision to continue supporting the award:
“Our commitment to sponsoring the Career Inspiration Award for a third year is part of GMLPF’s ongoing schools support strategy. This award really encourages schools to think creatively about how to approach careers information for their pupils, and to be fully inclusive of all options, including Apprenticeships which are a proven route into long term successful careers.
“We recognise the challenges faced by schools who are already stretched with limited resources. GMLPF and its members are able to offer free resources and support to help careers teachers raise awareness of Apprenticeships as part of their schools’ drive to offer their pupils comprehensive, impartial advice on career options.”
Services backed by members expertise
GMLPF offers a range of school support services such as attendance at careers evenings, pupil-friendly apprenticeships presentations, parent workshops and a supply of resources including Apprenticeships lesson plans, case studies and leaflets. GMLPF members have extensive experience of delivering high quality Apprenticeships, and have strong relationships with local employers. GMLPF works in partnership with its members to offer its support services for schools.
