As unemployment rates among young people are becoming higher, the Lincolnshire Business Partnership hopes to inspire educators from across the county and beyond to better prepare their students for a more employable future.

A one-day conference will be taking place on Friday, March 28 at Doubletree by Hilton in Lincoln.

The Lincolnshire Rutland Education Business Partnership aims to motivate delegates by highlighting important issues related to the employability of young people and showcasing the ways EBP can help bridge the gap between school and work.

Stella Morgan, strategic development manager for The EBP, said: “It’s never been more important to help young people find their place in society.

“Schools are constantly being creative in seeking ways to achieve this and to develop their students’ employability skills, and we hope to further inspire educators across the East Midland by providing a full day of thoughtful insight and information.”

In addition to providing updated information about local and national education agendas and allowing students a chance to voice their current concerns, the event will also touch on a range of subjects including:

- Tips on how schools can improve the school-to-work transition, ensuring students develop the skills required by employers in a competitive market.

- The importance of creativity and adaptability in developing confidence and self-esteem within young people to maximise potential, and how this can be achieved in a school setting.

- Plus the effects the EBP initiatives like Skills Tree and National Citizen Service can have on young people, especially from an employability standpoint.

Educators at the conference will also have a chance meet their EBP Community Coordinator in person and hear from actual students about how initiatives like National Citizen Service have helped them build important work skills.

The event is open to head teachers in both primary and secondary schools, as well as 6th form staff, senior leaders, heads of subject, work experience coordinators and school governors.

Tickets are just £35 for the full day or £25 for half-day primary school delegates.
