The purpose of Livery Schools Link is:
- To support schools in developing young people’s skills for work and life.
- To make schools and young people aware about the wide range of employment and training opportunities which are represented by Livery Companies and their members.
- To help to raise the aspirations of young people
- To positively encourage Livery Companies and their members to get actively involved in helping achieve links between them and schools.
The mission of LSL Ltd is to be a central resource available to any Livery Company and school wishing to work with it. LSL will provide information and support to Livery Companies to help them meet their educational aims and objectives and to schools to achieve the engagement with Companies which they seek. This work is for the benefit of young people.
