Schools Link is a voluntary organisation that aims to promote support
for schools in the Greater London area by Livery Companies of the
City of London and their members, helping to prepare young people
for the world of work.
We seek to act as the link between schools in need of help and
members of the Livery who wish to offer assistance in any form.
We act as a forum for the exchange of ideas and best practice in
the field and maintain links with the educational community. We
also run occasional events for our members on relevant topics. This
can range from one day events to ongoing partnerships with a school.
Our mission is to assist children from less advantaged backgrounds
to receive an enhanced educational experience at school and to have
their personal aspirations raised, thereby increasing their employability
and career options.
We are always looking for more members and for more ways to help
young people so if you are a school or Livery company based in London,
please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
