Spark! Awards

On Thursday I was delighted to celebrate the joint work between local businesses and schools that prepares young people for after they leave school through great work-related experiences. The award ceremony was organised by Spark! which links Hounslow employers and schools together.

I presented the Partnership award to Emma Mendonca and Helen Eyley of Enjoy Work at Chiswick Business Park, and Michelle Rees and Elizabeth Lawrence of Chiswick School, for their excellent work on the  ‘Future Focus’ Employability Programme.

During the year, more than 600 hundred Chiswick School students spent time at over 40 Chiswick Business Park-based companies learning about the world of work.

Congratulations on another successful year. Hounslow is lucky to have such dedicated and capable young professionals, who make a real difference to the local economy.
