We are delighted to appoint Alex Kenny, Director of Marketing at Fletchers Solicitors, to our Board of Governors.
Alex brings with him a wealth of commercial sector experience including strategic planning, insight and innovation and will be a real asset to the team as the college continues to grow and flourish following our successful merger with King George V 6th Form earlier this year.
Strong partnerships with regional businesses are really important to Southport College, from us providing the ongoing training for their Apprentices, to the businesses providing high quality valuable work placements and live briefs for our students; and we are proud of the strong industry links and partnerships we have developed across the region.
We have been working closely with Fletchers for many years, including a establishing a successful apprenticeship programme and providing staff development and training. A number of former students are now working there in a variety of roles too. With Alex now helping to steer our ship, we look forward to this strong partnership with one of the town’s key employers for many years to come.
