Businesses Celebrate Success in West Sussex
More than 20 businesses, both small and large, were honoured recently at the first West Sussex Education Business Partnership Awards held at Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
The event aimed to acknowledge the vital support local businesses freely give to help develop a successful future workforce for the area. Opening the event, Janice King, General Advisor 14-19, Children’s Services for West Sussex County Council, said “Through work experience, careers events and visits to schools, businesses help our young people understand the world of work in a way that schools just aren’t able to. They bring up-to-date knowledge of working practices and the huge variety of career paths that are available to the workforce of tomorrow”
Kain Lawrence and Gina Madgwick from Q Hair & Beauty explained – ‘Providing opportunity is very important to us as a salon and we enjoyed the event, it was superb, set in a beautiful location and felt privileged to be apart of it.’
Q offer placements to local schools and colleges and you might not know that the salon also has a unique after schools club ‘The Tiger Club’. If you or someone you know wants to get involved – Let us know!
