NEBP invites business partners to celebrate joint achievements Last night, Newham Education Business Partnership (NEBP) thanked Tate & Lyle for their support over the past year at a “Thank-you” ceremony to celebrate the joint achievements of 2005. Representatives from Tate & Lyle and other business partners received certificates to honour their contributions, which have been fundamental to NEBP’s work in the Borough. NEBP helps young people develop the skills they need for employment through a range of programmes that bring students, teachers and local employers together to bridge the gap between school and work. Michael Grier, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Tate & Lyle, said: “Support for education lies at the very heart of Tate & Lyle’s community involvement. NEBP’s knowledge, expertise and professionalism are essential factors in maximising our partnership’s efforts to help raise students’ achievement levels and develop the right skills for their future. We have been working with NEBP since its earliest days some 16 years ago, and we are very excited about the success of its many projects here in Newham.” During 2005, NEBP organised numerous events for students: over 3,500 had a two-week work experience placement, more than 3,000 participated in employability skills programmes and many more took part in [vocational programmes such as] Enterprise projects, the LETS Build Construction scheme and the new Hospitality & Catering programme. Primary school pupils have also benefited with 8,000 participating in Citizenship Week activities, and around 200 working with reading and numeracy partners. “These achievements could not have taken place without the support of our local business partners such as Tate & Lyle, one of our longest relationships. Schools and the Local Authority frequently tell us what a great difference our support makes to Newham. We are delighted to celebrate this success with our partners tonight and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership in the future!” said Marion Faust, Director, NEBP, at the ceremony. Tate & Lyle has been involved with NEBP since its early days, when a manager was seconded to lead the partnership and set up long-term projects, including the innovative World of Work project and the Building Opportunities and Skills Seminars (BOSS) programme. Tate & Lyle continues to be actively involved in NEBP at a strategic as well as practical level, with employees serving both as volunteers and on the NEBP Board and Steering Committee. The “Thank-you” celebration was held at the Financial Services Authority in Canary Wharf and was attended by NEBP, Trident and representatives from Newham schools and the Local Authority.
