Levelling the playing field

Community Engagement

Harnessing collective power to impact the right young people in the right way.

We help your school connect with businesses and organisations that share your ideals and goals, and then assist in forming effective social mobility communities. This is achieved by providing access to unique learning, marketing, and fundraising opportunities, and providing on-going support and guidance.

We also help arrange and co-ordinate community outreach programmes that focus on skills shortages, and improve teaching and learning. All of this, while assisting you in marketing your school in appropriate ways.

A Love of Learning

Eddie left the corporate world 15 years ago to pursue his true calling as an educator. Involved in a number of extracurricular projects, he is currently running a workshop that helps young people from disadvantaged communities better appreciate maths and science.

For an educational facility, BECSLink provides a space where privilege and need can meet in productive and valuable ways.

“In our first six months as a BECSLink Community, over 500 pupils benefitted from our Inspiring Science Days, run in collaboration with Sublime Science and Aston Villa. For Lichfield Cathedral School, working with BECSLink is absolutely transformational, especially for all the young people we are able to help. It enables us an organisation to work ethically, and it sends out a really clear message to our communities. Lichfield Cathedral School is now able to provide opportunities to young people that we could not do otherwise.”

Sue Hannam, Head of Lichfield Cathedral School

Just a quick message to to all the staff who delivered the science morning today at Ackworth School . My year 5 pupils had a brilliant time and really enjoyed it.It would be great to keep the partnership working in the future – we would be delighted to be involved in  future initiatives.
