Community Foundation provides vital support

by | Aug 3, 2020 | News

MK Community Foundation has awarded Worktree a Community Grant to develop online resources in response to Covid. The project will develop its Career Snapshot library and a virtual form of Career WorkOut.  The work has begun, in a collaboration with Prominent Media and Lynx Networks, and will be reported on October 2020 and July 2021.

Alan Bullen, MD of Lynx Networks and Chair of Worktree Trustees, said:  “”We are delighted that the Community Foundation is able to fund the development of the team’s ideas for getting online the face-to-face services that Worktree has delivered successfully in schools for years.  This will enable MK school pupils to continue experiencing employer encounters at a challenging time for education business partnership.”
