chamber awards win 2017

We're delighted that Ahead Partnership have been announced regional winners for the Education & Business Partnership Award at the Chamber Business Awards 2017.

This award recognises organisations that demonstrate how they work with businesses to help young people gain an understanding of the world of work and develop the crucial employability skills that employers value.

Ahead Partnership have been announced the regional winners for West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, with the overall national winner set to be announced at the Gala Dinner on 30 November in London.

Stephanie Burras CBE, our Chief Executive, said: "We're thrilled that Ahead Partnership and its very successful Make the Grade education business programme has been acknowledged with this regional award. The impact that we achieve would not be possible without the diligence and enthusiasm of a highly committed team and visionary partners in education and business, many of which are Chamber members."

"This award reflects the excitement that all of our stakeholders feel around the programme and its ability to engage young people effectively and creatively in the world of work. We are looking forward to continuing our national growth, starting with our Sheffield City Region launch later this year."
