As part of Leigh Academy Trust’s commitment to working with business, we are delighted to sponsor the Commitment to Skills Award, within the newly-launched Dartford Business Awards programme.

It is essential that young people have access to the tools that will help them to progress their careers and lead fulfilling lives.  Leigh Academies Trust is looking for businesses and organisations that demonstrate strong commitment to training and developing their teams at all levels. We very much appreciate the excellence already displayed by many of our business partners in this area and hope that they and other companies will enter the competition in this category.

Simon Beamish, Chief Executive commented “LAT is strongly committed to connecting schools and pupils to businesses and employers across the region. We have already developed our own “Working with Business” department within the Trust to do just this. We are proud to enjoy great relationships with some of the region’s best employers in order to provide even more opportunities for our pupils, eager to plan successful career pathways. LAT started in Dartford and is very committed to helping to shape and strengthen the community. It is a great honour for us this year to be one of the leading sponsors for the Dartford Business Awards and we look forward to our full and enthusiastic involvement.”
