Focus Consultants has been presented with a special award
for its commitment to providing quality work experience to young people. 
The company’s Boston office was handed the Investors in
Education Award after being nominated by Boston Grammar School for offering an individual
programme to one of its students. 
Focus Consultants, which specialises in project management, construction
and property services, and regeneration, received the certificate at an event
organised by The EBP at Belton Woods Hotel, near Grantham. 
The EBP has
worked with schools and colleges, local authorities, charities, social
enterprises and private sector organisations to provide a range of coordinated
employability skills development services to more than 1 million young people
in the area since 2001. 
It was the second time that Focus Consultants has been
presented with an Investors in Education Award, and follows a similar accolade
received in 2012. 
This time it was in recognition of the tailored work
experience opportunities it provided to a 15-year-old boy interested in design. 
A school representative said: “This company gave the student
the full package in relation to work.  CV
and interview skills, along with a mock task for the week.  Very supportive.” 
Partner at Focus Consultants’ Lincolnshire offices, Trevor
Newton, said: “Work experience is an important part of a young person’s
development, and the team at Focus is proud to support the younger generation
with valuable and insightful work experience opportunities.  We are delighted that our commitment has been
recognised with a second Investors in Education Award.” 

Focus, which has its head office in Nottingham and branches
at Endeavour Park in Boston, Aubourn near Lincoln, Leicester and at Holborn in
London, was one of over 70 businesses nominated by over 50 schools in
Lincolnshire and Rutland to receive the award from more than 4,000
organisations who hosted work experience students in 2013/2014.
