Paul Andrews, CEO of sponsor company, Jobs In Kent commented:

“At Jobsinkent.com we recognise that there is a huge amount of talented young people in the County . We believe that the My Careers Options platform allows students to understand their inherent skills and talents and is a very valuable resource.

Jobsinkent.com are keen to facilitate the use of the platform and therefore decided to sponsor a school to use it. We chose Longfield Academy as we have had a relationship with the school via the FSB 30:30 programme and having met a large number of the students and staff we felt that they would be ideal partners to work with.”
