The EMC was proud to receive and award from BEST(Business & education Succeeding together) at a ceremony in Oct 2018.
The event was to celebrate how School students and employers from around the borough have been marking 25 years of successful work experience placements in Wandsworth – which has seen around 25,000 young people getting their first taste of the world of work.
This year’s event was hosted by Ernest Bevin College and was attended by students from Ernest Bevin College, Graveney Academy, Burntwood Academy, Chestnut Grove Academy, and Nightingale Community Academy.The EMC and a large number of employers who have provided work experience were the ceremony.
BEST (Business and Education Succeeding Together) is the council’s education and business partnership and works with about 700 employers to give Wandsworth’s young people access to around a thousand work experience placements a year. The awards celebrate the most motivated students and committed employers.
