Premium Partners is recognised as the 2016 national winner for education and business partnership by the British Chamber of Commerce. Premium Partners is at the cutting edge of employer engagement for young people. The Key to its success is robust and meaningful relationships with local businesses and the bespoke manner in which they can work with both schools. If you would like to learn more about how you could become involved in this innovative new scheme please contact Lara Loomes at L.Loomes@downend.com Our launch in November proved to be extremely well received by the local businesses that attended. All agreed that the students who were also there, were a credit to both schools with one business owner commenting "how confident and mature the attitudes of the year 10 students were". As a result of the event, several businesses have now joined the partnership.
