Business in the Community's Awards for Excellence are the UK's most prestigious award scheme for responsible business. They reward companies whose employees, as volunteers, make a positive and sustainable impact in their local community.
The winning Legal & General team worked with BITC and teaching staff to create and deliver a full day’s challenge for 55 year 10 Business Studies pupils at Therfield School, Leatherhead, for whom Marketing is a core part of their curriculum.
John Laney, Head of Marketing said, “I am very proud of everyone who took part. The team achieved exceptional results in terms of delivery and positive feedback from students at Therfield School.”
Tracy Davis, Work Related Learning co-ordinator at Therfield School said: ‘Legal & General are worthy winners of this award. The students involved gained so much from learning about “the real world”. We extend our thanks to Legal & General for providing such a brilliant day for our year 10 Business students.”
As a leading financial services provider Legal & General is committed to helping the next generations to prepare for their working lives and to understand the value of money. The company aims to provide help to over 1,000 Year 10 students (14 and 15 year olds) each year.
