Schools Link was formed in 2003 from the former Adoption of Schools
Working Party of LOGVEC which itself had been formed under the Lord
Mayoralty of Sir Francis McWilliams in 1992/3 to help promote the
traditional involvement of the Livery Companies in education and
training. With input and support from the then Guild of Educators,
now Company of Educators, who provide LSL's Administrator and Hon
Treasurer, we now have a wider role including providing support
for the Lord Mayor's Financial Literacy Initiative.
We advise the Livery on the forms help may take, which can range
from full financial sponsorship of a new Academy to individuals
offering a few hours of time on an ad-hoc basis. We act as a focal
point through which the educational community may make contact with
the Livery. We act as a forum for discussion and the exchange of
ideas. We also run occasional events for the Livery and for schools
to develop the levels of interaction between them and encourage
both sides to explore further what can be achieved.
