Jonathan Ledger, CEO of Global Skills Ledger Ltd

I am very much looking forward to supporting AllAboutSchoolLeavers in co-judging entries for the prestigious School Leaver Awards 2017. It is always so fantastic and very enlightening to see so many small, medium and large sized companies and their staff using really innovative and creative ways to generate and offer job and training opportunities to young people leaving school and to start them off in their careers maybe through apprenticeships or higher / sponsored degrees.

It is totally heartening and inspiring when companies make such outstanding efforts to give today’s school leavers the chance of a career opportunity for tomorrow and I love being a part of rewarding the very best!
