Mandy Brook, Director of RSE Group will become the “Virtual Schools Enterprise Advisor” as part of a new Careers Education Scheme which launched this month.
Working alongside ESCC, Skills East Sussex and The Careers and Enterprise Company, Mandy and the RSE Group will be the catalyst in inspiring and teaching carers and students in care, a chance to understand what finding a role in the 21st century is all about.
Over the next year the scheme will focus on ensuring that vulnerable children, in particular those who have been in or are still in the care system, will not leave the system without employment, education and training.
As advocates of the Youth Employment Charter, Mandy and her team are always looking for opportunities to get involved with helping young people get into work.
Mandy says “I’m incredibly pleased to be getting involved with “virtual School”. It is a little outside the box in the way that we are as recruiters, so the matching by the ESCC couldn’t be better. I think the RSE group will compliment them perfectly and we will do all we can to help them achieve greater things than they currently are”
Martin Ellis, Chairman of Skills East Sussex says “It’s great to have the support of local companies and organisations, such as the RSE Group, to help bring the world of work closer to East Sussex youngsters. It brings a practical element, and enthusiasm, that schools and colleges can’t deliver of their own”.
It is an exciting time for the RSE Group and Mandy and her team are driven to make a difference to the lives of children in care within Virtual School
