Over 80 employers from Lincolnshire, including Bakkavor, Cancer Research UK, Guttridge Ltd, Roythornes and Spalding Energy, have been recognised for their commitment to promoting career opportunities for students.
The Lincolnshire and Rutland Education Business Partnership (EBP) acknowledged and awarded these companies during its annual Investors in Education Awards Ceremony in November.
Claire Flavell, operations manager for EBP, said: “Hundreds of businesses throughout the region go above and beyond each year to provide high quality work placements and meaningful experiences for students throughout the county.
“Our awards provide schools and colleges the opportunity to nominate and acknowledge those whose dedication and commitment to the future’s workforce has shined most during 2013.
“At EBP, we are devoted to creating the link between the worlds of business and education, and the support this year’s award recipients offered Lincolnshire and Rutland teenagers has been absolutely priceless in terms of helping us build that bridge.
“We, along with Lincolnshire and Rutland’s schools and teenagers, couldn’t be more grateful for the work and life experiences these businesses have provided to hundreds of young people across the region.”
