A year of strengthening links between schools and businesses was celebrated yesterday at Sarah Bonnell School.
Students at the Deanery Road, Stratford, school met enterprise advisers and Robert Halfon MP, the minister of state for apprenticeships and skills.
The London Enterprise Adviser network has been helping youngsters, including those at Sarah Bonnell, by using volunteers to inspire and inform them about the workplace.
Mr Halfon called the scheme “empowering and encouraging”.
He said: “It is fantastic to see how the Careers & Enterprise Company’s Enterprise Adviser Network is empowering and encouraging young people across the capital to learn about the world of work - especially young women here at Sarah Bonnell School.
