Young Enterprise (YE) in Cornwall has received a cash boost from SUEZ Recycling.
Tony Burge, plant manager at the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre, presented a cheque for £450 to YE to support students at Brannel and Penrice academies in St Austell, who will be among the first to benefit from digital careers-based courses, designed by YE following the Covid-19 outbreak.
Brannel’s careers lead James Worthington, who is grateful to Suez and YE for their support, said: ”Never before has there been a need for students to be prepared for the working world, with an uncertain job market in the UK, let alone Cornwall.
“The help from this project will allow our year ten students to engage with the labour market to reach their career potential.”
YE is the UK’s leading financial literacy, enterprise and entrepreneurship charity for young people. Every year YE works with over 250,000 young people, supports over 9,000 teachers in both enterprise and financial education, with the help of more than 7,000 volunteers and 3,500 businesses.
