Walpole launches Tomorrow’s Talent
Walpole, the sector body for the British luxury industry which counts over 250 of the UK’s finest luxury brands amongst its membership, has today launched Tomorrow’s Talent, its first secondary education and schools programme, with a new partnership with The Chelsea Academy, an outstanding Academy in South West London.
Tomorrow’s Talent is launching nationally in association with The Careers & Enterprise Company, an umbrella organisation funded by the Department for Education that aims to ensure that every young person is inspired and prepared for the world of work. Tomorrow’s Talent sits within Walpole’s Luxury in the Making initiative that addresses the critical challenges around the talent pipeline in the British luxury sector; currently worth over £32billion to the UK economy.
Tomorrow’s Talent will connect businesses from Walpole’s membership with their local schools to provide students aged 11-18 with direct knowledge and experience in roles available within the sector, enabling them to make important decisions before entering further education, training or employment.
