activities are supported by business ambassadors - professional people who work with schools to help prepare young people for the world of work.
provides support to all first, middle, high, academy and special schools as well as colleges and more than 600 businesses across the county.
Gillian Bulman, chief executive of NEBP
said: We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Press Association and the programmes offered by the Media Experience will be flexible and adaptable to meet the requirements of individual learners.
Today has been great and I would advise any organisation to help support the EBP as it's a great way to network with other positive-minded people" In 2008 - 2009 NEBP
created links with 70 employers and 43 employers actively supporting a total of 264 students in the first year.
The success of projects delivered by NEBP
often depends on the input of our Business Ambassadors.
Three members of NEBP
staff travelled across to meet the first cohort of business ambassadors to volunteer for the Dutch scheme.
Although a first for NEBP
and Blue Venture, other North East EBP's have worked with Kennedy on previous occasions at schools throughout the region.
