Lighthouse Business Partner’s launch Breakfast a Big Success

Over 100 guests attended the Lighthouse Business Partner's launch Breakfast event on 15th May. Headteacher, Tom Inman opened the breakfast and Gary Lewis, Chief Executive of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership, gave an update on the Trust's growth and future plans.

Our guest speaker was entrepreneur and polar explorer Antony Jinman. Antony is recognised for being the twelfth Britain to have skied to the Geographic North Pole and ski solo to the Geographic South Pole. Keen to share his knowledge and experiences, the talk provided a fascinating insight into Antony’s personal journey on how he came to be a modern day polar explorer and educational entrepreneur. Antony discussed his latest venture LiketoBe, a networking platform connecting employers with educators.

Many thanks to our Sixth Form students from Gordano, Backwell and Chew Valley schools who spoke about their experiences from a recent partnership conference held at UWE Bristol Business School.

Employer engagement is a key aspect of our Business Partnership and can include: mentoring activities, work experience, guest speakers, links to alumni, careers fairs and networking events.
