THE first in a series of business breakfasts at a Portishead school has been hailed a success.
The early morning event at Gordano School attracted 28 members of the business community.
School staff hope that by forging links with local businesses, students will be able to improve their employability skills through training and mentoring activities.
Mike Beesley, the CEO of Resource Solutions Group, spoke to the audience about how his company has tackled the recession in a positive way and then highlighted the benefits for businesses working with schools to influence the aspirations and skills of young people.
Gordano assistant headteacher Alison Wood said: “Our aim is to ensure that students benefit from business links.
