Link teachers champion Young Enterprise

A vitally important role in every school is the link teacher who is the school champion for Young Enterprise, and link to school for YE staff.

The link teacher’s role is to support the students in their journey from the initial registration through to completion. Link teachers know their students best and their knowledge and support is invaluable.

Every year all our link teachers are very much appreciated, however, one person is nominated by their students to receive the link teacher of the year award. The 2014 honours went to John Reidy at Talbot Heath School.
