GMLPF to sponsor careers award for third year

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.

Learning Plus Expo 2014

Schools Select Learning Plus Expo 2014

GMLPF is looking forward to meeting school heads, governers, teachers and other learning professionals at the Schools Select Learning Plus Expo on June 16th. As exhibitors at the event, we will be speaking to audiences about the support GMLPF and its members can offer schools in the area of raising awareness of Apprenticeships and other vocational options for pupils.

School support services

The support GMLPF offers schools is provided in conjunction with its members – over 60 providers of Apprenticeships and other work-based learning – and takes the form of attendance at careers evenings, pupil-friendly presentations, parent workshops, and provision of support materials such as lesson plans. GMLPF members have exceptional expertise and experience of training for specific industry sectors and are well positioned to inform pupils about using Apprenticeships and associated training programmes as routes into successful professional careers.

School curriculum

The Schools Select Learning Plus Expo 2014 takes place at the Cunard Building as part of Eduation Week at the International Festival for Business. The event is an opportunity for high quality providers to showcase their services to  an invited audience of teaching professionals. Via the exhibitors, the event presents a plethora of innovative ways to increase pupil achievement and attainment levels. The exhibition provides delegates with the opportunity to meet workshop providers in person and discuss the ways their services can benefit the school curriculum.
