At Southern Water our aim is to put customers at the heart of all that we do. We need the best people to deliver our business plan which is why Southern Water is part of the Enterprise Adviser Network in the Coast to Capital LEP.
This innovative scheme pairs employers with education organisations to advise on student employability skills. This ensures all students leave with great qualifications and the skills needed for the workplace and life!
Our Head of Communications, Corinna Allen is an EA for Steyning Grammar School and has been supporting their leadership team.
“I’m delighted to be working with Nick Wergan and his team to use my skill set to support Steyning Grammar School. I believe it’s vital that local employers invest time in their local schools. It’s about making the business real to students in terms of the kind of attitude we look for in employees and ensuring that we’re on their radar as a great place to work in the future.”
Headteacher Nick Wergan said: “Employers complain that students leave school without the skills needed to be successful in the workplace. Our focus on Learning Character shows our commitment to bridging this gap and ensuring every student that leaves our school, has the skills to reach their true potential in their next steps in academic study and the world of work. We are delighted to be working with local businesses such as Southern Water to support this approach.”
