Manchester Health Academy Takes Gold
Manchester Health Academy won the Gold Go4It Award for all the
work that the Academy does around developing those skills
recognised by employers as being key to employability. Nicole (Year
8) and Jordan (Yr 10) along with the Vice Principal Mrs Gorman were
invited to receive the award on behalf of the Academy at the House
of Lords by Lord Knight of Weybridge.
This is a prestigious award provided by the nationally
recognised HTI (Heads, Teachers and Industry Ltd) who are a
not-for-profit organisation with over 25 years proven track record
working across business, education and government to raise the
aspirations and employability of young people. They challenge,
stretch and develop leaders of schools, colleges and academies who
go on to inspire our next generation. Over 20,000 school leaders
have been trained and developed by HTI in 10 years.
Both students have participated in a range of activities offered
at the Academy, which help to build up those skills that companies
recognise as being important, not only in the world of work, but
also contribute to a successful society. All students are
encouraged to participate in extended activities that are on offer
as well full participation in the enrichment programme across years
7 and 8.
Well done to all students and staff!
