SFX School is delighted to welcome Richard Vart as the new enterprise advisor. This is an exciting development and will support the school in its endeavours to provide outstanding careers education for the students within the school. Pete Jackson,  Careers Lead, commented "I am very much looking forward to working with Richard and utilising his knowledge, experience and community links to develop opportunities for our students to meet and work with employers within our local community".

Commenting on this new voluntary role, Richard said

"I am delighted to be able to help Pete and the team at SFX deliver relevant and business focused advice, information and support to young people in North Yorkshire.
The partnership between the HR industry body of which I am part of (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), the Careers and Enterprise Company's York and North Yorkshire Careers Hub and the school's career lead is an example of bringing together the worlds of education, support and business to offer young people a real insight into what options are available for them, and how to go about pursuing them.

Ange Wilmington, Enterprise Coordinator, commented "This is an exciting development for SFX school to team with an Enterprise Advisor from the network with the skill set, knowledge and drive Richard has. This will add value to the schools' careers programme already being delivered and steered with great enthusiasm by Pete in the school.  We are looking forwards to working together and seeing what can be achieved."
