I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Alan Oscroftcenter_img Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT) posted first-half results Tuesday. In response, capping an excellent year so far, the Ashtead share price jumped 6% in early trading. By mid-afternoon the rise stood at 4%, with Ashtead leading the FTSE 100 index on the day.2020 is a year that most investors might prefer to forget. But Ashtead shareholders have had a terrific time. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic knocking most shares for six, Ashtead is up 40% year-to-date, way ahead of the Footsie’s 13% loss.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Ashtead shares initially fell harder than the FTSE 100 in the early days of the pandemic. But they’ve since come storming back in one of the recovery stories of the year. Those who managed to buy right at the bottom have trebled their investment in as little as nine months. It’s all exciting stuff from an equipment rental firm, something we might normally expect to be dull as ditchwater.Enviable FTSE 100 resultAshtead put in a strong second quarter, resulting in underlying revenue falling just 4% over the six months to 31 October. EBITDA fell by a very modest 7%. Underlying EPS did drop 19%. But the 89p earned per share is still very healthy, and something most FTSE 100 companies can really only dream of in 2020.On the balance sheet front, things are looking very impressive. Ashtead reported record free cash flow of £822m. And its net debt to EBITDA ratio is coming down, to 1.7 times from 1.9 times a year previously. The interim dividend is maintained at 7.15p per share.What’s the secret of Ashtead’s success? Chief Executive Brendan Horgan put it down to “the successful execution of our long-term strategy, which we embarked upon after the last recession, to broaden and diversify our end markets and strengthen our balance sheet.”He added that “we now expect full year results ahead of our previous expectations.“Be preparedSuccessfully negotiating a market downturn is all in the preparation. Too many FTSE 100 companies borrow their way to growth during healthy times, piling up debt and leaving nothing in reserve. Then when a crunch hits, they’re in trouble. That’s why I’m increasingly looking first to a company’s debt situation whenever I plan an investment.It’s a bit like the stress tests our FTSE 100 banks have to undergo every year. I’m not too interested in how a company is managing its balance sheet during the good times. No, I want to see enough strength there to convince me it can handle a market slump without any real problems. Ashtead satisfies me on that score easily.For the 2021–22 year, forecasts suggest a P/E of 19.5, which might seem a bit high. But Ashtead’s strategy has produced years of double-digit earnings growth. I expect more to come, and I rate the P/E as fair value.Oh, and Ashtead has a progressive dividend policy too. The yield is only around 1.5% now, but the prospect of long-term growth ahead of inflation makes it attractive to me. I rate Ashtead a long-term ISA buy. This share led the FTSE 100 on Tuesday.

Bishops United Against Gun Violence urge political action to stop…

first_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Back to Press Releases Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI COVID-19, Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Smithfield, NC Dear people of God in The Episcopal Church,In Revelation 21:4, we learn that in the new heaven, God will wipe every tear from our eyes. In her novel “Gilead,” Marilynne Robinson tells us that “it takes nothing from the loveliness of the verse to say that is exactly what will be required.” Today God’s people are weeping over the dual pandemics of COVID-19 and gun violence, and we are called once again to respond.The spiraling rate at which Americans are buying firearms during the pandemic is driving a deadly spike in gun violence. According to researchers from the University of California, Davis and the University of California Firearm Violence Research Center, Americans bought 2.1 million more firearms in March through May 2020 than over the same period in previous years. That was just a prelude to June, when Americans bought 2.4 million firearms, a 145 percent increase from June 2019.This gun buying surge has, not surprisingly, begat a surge in gun violence. Authors of the University of California paper estimated that 776 additional injuries or deaths occurred across the nation between March and May. And according to Everytown for Gun Safety, the Gun Violence Archive’s records indicate that 345 more people died of gunshots between March and May than during the same period in previous years.Like so much else about the COVID-19 crisis, the surge in gun violence has hit communities of color hardest.In New York City, twice as many people were shot this June as last June, and police say 97 percent of those victims were people of color. In Chicago, shootings this June were 76 percent higher than last, and concentrated heavily in communities of color. In Louisville, where protests have proliferated after Breonna Taylor was shot by police in March, non-fatal shootings have doubled over the same period last year, gun deaths have risen by 40 percent, and between January and May, almost 75 percent of homicide victims were Black. And in June, as people took to the streets across the country in peaceful protests against racism, gun buying surged highest in states with the highest levels of overt racism.Too many people, researchers tell us, are motivated to buy guns by anxiety and fear.As Christians, we know that Jesus tells us not to be afraid. And as advocates, we know that having a gun in the home in the midst of a pandemic does little to guarantee safety. Abused women are five times more likely to be killed if their abuser has a firearm. Children are at significantly greater risk playing in a home with an unsecured gun. The guns Americans are buying today will be wreaking havoc on our streets and in our homes long after the pandemic has passed.The kind of sensible gun reforms that Bishops United Against Gun Violence supports could help change this situation, but they have been thwarted by politicians of both parties who offer only thoughts and prayers in the wake of mass shootings rather than meaningful reforms.We urge you to change this situation by voting for candidates who support sensible gun reforms and ensuring that all citizens have the opportunity to vote. Our partners at Brady: United to Prevent Gun Violence and March for Our Lives have put together an excellent toolkit highlighting the essential link between voting rights and our country’s ability to enact popular and sensible gun safety legislation. Racist and discriminatory voter suppression is rampant in our country, and the communities most affected by gun violence — namely Black and Latinx communities — face the greatest barriers.The campaign seeks to mobilize gun violence prevention activists to lobby for expanding voting access across four broad categories:Vote-by-mail and absentee votingOnline and same-day voter registrationEarly votingRestoring voting rights to people with felony convictionsWe urge you to become active in this campaign in the coming months, to make sure that you, your family and friends are registered to vote, and to have a back-up voting plan should the pandemic make voting in person risky. We also ask that you contact your U.S. senators if they are not up for reelection this year and let them know you would like them to pass the sensible gun reform bills currently stalled in that chamber.To ensure that Episcopalians are informed voters on gun violence issues, soon after Labor Day, we plan to gather partners from gun violence prevention organizations to help us learn more about how we can continue working and voting against the pandemic gun buying surge and its deadly aftermath. We invite you to follow the Episcopalians Against Gun Violence Facebook page for details and registration coming soon.Since our inception, the advocacy of Bishops United Against Gun Violence has been rooted in gospel values and sustained by communal prayer. While we cannot gather in person, we know that many of you have become accustomed to worshiping online. Therefore, in September, we are planning to host on our Facebook page a churchwide service of lamentation for all those whose lives have been touched by gun violence. Please follow the page for details coming soon. Together we will weep for those we have lost, grieve the fear that leads us astray, and prepare to witness at the ballot box and in the halls of Congress to the God of life who overcomes death, now and forevermore.Faithfully,Bishops United Against Gun ViolenceAtestiguando al Dios de Amor:  Una Carta a la Iglesia EpiscopalEstimado Pueblo de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal,En Apocalipsis 21:4, aprendemos que en el nuevo cielo, Dios les enjugará toda lágrima de los ojos. En su novela “Gilead”, Marilynne Robinson nos dice que “no toma nada de la belleza del verso decir que eso es exactamente lo que se requerirá”. Hoy el pueblo de Dios se lamenta por las dobles pandemias de COVID-19 y la violencia con armas de fuego, y estamos llamados a responder de nuevo.La tasa en espiral a la que los estadounidenses están comprando armas de fuego durante la pandemia está aumentando a un pico mortífero la violencia con armas de fuego. Según investigadores de la University of California, Davis y la University of California Firearm Violence Research Center, los estadounidenses compraron 2.1 millones más armas de fuego en marzo hasta mayo de 2020 que durante el mismo periodo en años anteriores. Eso era solo un preludio a junio, cuando los estadounidenses compraron 2.4 millones armas de fuego, un incremento de 145 por ciento de junio de 2019.Esta oleada de comprar armas de fuego, no sorprendente, engendró una oleada de violencia con armas de fuego. Autores del informe de la University of California estimaron que 776 heridas adicionales o muertes ocurrieron en toda la nación entre marzo y mayo. Y según Everytown for Gun Safety, los registros de los Archivos de la Violencia con Armas de Fuego (Gun Violence Archives) indican que 345 más personas murieron de heridas de armas de fuego entre marzo y mayo que durante el mismo periodo en años anteriores.Al igual que muchas otras de las crisis de COVID-19, la oleada de violencia con armas de fuego afectó más las comunidades de personas de color.En la Ciudad de Nueva York, el doble de personas fueron baleadas este junio que el junio del año pasado, y la policía dice que el 97 por ciento de esas victimas fueron personas de color. En Chicago, tiroteos en este junio aumentan un 76 por ciento más que el año pasado, en gran medida se concentran en comunidades de color. En Louisville, donde manifestaciones han proliferado después del tiroteo de Breonna Taylor mientras ella estaba durmiendo en su propia cama por la policía en marzo, tiroteos no fatales han duplicado en el mismo periodo del año pasado, las muertes por armas de fuego han aumentado por 40 por ciento, y entre enero y mayo, casi un 75 por ciento de victimas de homicidio fueron negras. Y en junio, mientras las personas se manifestaron en toda la nación en manifestaciones pacíficas contra el racismo, la compra de armas incrementó más alta en estados con niveles más altas de racismo manifiesto.Demasiada gente, los investigadores no dicen, se motivan a comprar pistolas por ansiedad y miedo. Como cristianos, sabemos que Jesús nos dice a no temer. Y como defensores, sabemos que tener una pistola en el hogar en medio de una pandemia hace poco para garantizar la seguridad. Las mujeres maltratadas son cinco veces más propensas a ser matadas si su abusador tiene un arma de fuego. Los niños están en significativamente mayor riesgo por jugar en un hogar con un arma no asegurada. Las armas que los estadounidenses compran hoy causarán estragos en nuestras calles y en nuestros hogares mucho después de que haya pasado la pandemia.El tipo de reformas sensibles que Obispos Unidos en Contra de la Violencia con Armas de Fuego apoya podrá ayudar a cambiar esta circunstancia, pero han sido frustradas por políticos de ambos partidos que ofrecen solo pensamientos y oraciones tras tiroteos masivos en vez de reformas significativas.Les instamos a cambiar esta situación votando por candidatos que apoyan reformas sobre la seguridad de armas y asegurando que todos los ciudadanos tengan la oportunidad de votar. Nuestros socios de Brady:  United to Prevent Gun Violence y Marcha por Nuestras Vidas (March for Our Lives) han preparado una excelente guía que destaca el enlace esencial entre el derecho de voto y la habilidad de nuestro país a promulgar legislación popular y sobre la seguridad de armas. La supresión del voto racista y discriminatorio no deja de aumentar en nuestro país, y las comunidades más impactadas por la violencia con armas de fuego—a saber comunidades Negras y Latinx—se enfrentan los obstáculos más grandes.La campaña intenta movilizar activistas para la prevención de violencia con armas de fuego a presionar a favor de expandir el acceso al voto en cuatro categorías generales:Votación por correo y en ausenciaCenso electoral en línea y en el mismo díaVotación anticipadaRestauración del derecho de voto a los condenados por delitoLes instamos a participar en esta campaña en los próximos meses, asegurando de que usted, su familiares y amigos están inscritos para votar, y tengan un plan de votación alternativo en caso de que la pandemia hace arriesgada la votación en persona. También les pedimos que pongan en contacto con sus senadores estadounidenses si no son elegibles para la reelección este año y que háganles saber que a usted le gustaría que aprueben los proyectos de ley sobre la seguridad de armas actualmente estancados en esa cámara. Para asegurar que los episcopales sean votantes informados en los asuntos de la violencia con armas de fuego, poco después del Día de Trabajo, planificamos reunir socios de organizaciones de la prevención de violencia con armas de fuego para ayudarnos en saber más de cómo podemos seguir trabajando y votando contra la oleada de la compra de armas como resultado de la pandemia y sus consecuencias mortíferas. Les invitamos a seguir la página de Facebook de Episcopalians Against Gun Violence para detalles e inscripción que vienen pronto.Desde nuestra incepción, la abogacía de Obispos Unidos en Contra de la Violencia con Armas ha sido arraigada en valores del Evangelio y sostenida por oración comunitaria. Si bien no podemos reunirnos en persona, sabemos que muchos de ustedes se han acostumbrado a la adoración virtual. Por lo tanto, en septiembre, intentamos celebrar en nuestra página de Facebook un Servicio de Lamentación para toda la iglesia para todos cuyas vidas han sido afectadas por la violencia con armas de fuego. Sírvanse seguir la página para detalles que vienen pronto. Juntos lloraremos por los que hemos perdido, lamentaremos el miedo que nos lleva por mal, y preparemos a testiguar a la urna y en los pasillos del Congreso al Dios de vida que supera la muerte, ahora y por siempre.Fielmente,Obispos Unidos en Contra de la Violencia con Armas Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Bishops United Against Gun Violence, This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Bishops United Against Gun ViolencePosted Jul 22, 2020 Rector Collierville, TN Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Tampa, FL Press Release Service The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Featured Jobs & Calls Bishops United Against Gun Violence urge political action to stop spike in shootings during COVID-19 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Albany, NY Featured Events Tags Submit an Event Listing Gun Violence Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Bath, NC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Faith & Politics, Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Belleville, IL Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Shreveport, LA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Washington, DC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

7 Tips for Taking Healthy Nutrition on the Road

Yet, travel schedules can wreak havoc on healthy habits you’ve worked so hard to adopt. With a few simple tips below from Florida Hospital’s Center for Nutritional Excellence, travelling doesn’t have to be a vacation from good health and nutrition.Pack Food. Whether traveling by car or airplane, packing food can put good-for-you goodies at your fingertips. For automobile travel, bring a cooler packed with whole-wheat sandwiches, fruit, Greek yogurt, nuts, raw vegetables, low fat cheese sticks, and lots of water. Packing for air travel is a little tougher, but still manageable. Great air travel foods include peanut butter sandwiches, homemade trail mix, apples, protein bars, and air popped popcorn. Do Your Research. Before heading out to eat, research available restaurants and menu options. Use your smart phone to look up menus and calorie counts. Taking a look at the menu beforehand can help you make a better, more informed choice. Gluten Free Guide. If you have celiac disease or gluten intolerances, travel can cause anxiety about finding the foods your body needs. One resource that can make it easier to find gluten-free restaurants before you travel is The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide (2011).Share Entrees. It’s no secret that restaurant portions are huge. Split your meal with a travel buddy to save calories and keep your portion sizes under control.Choose your treat. Vacations can be a time to indulge and enjoy. It’s okay to celebrate with ice cream or your favorite dessert, but don’t over-do it. Pick a treat and stick to having just one per day.H20 to Go.  Air travel can be dehydrating. Aim to have 8 oz of water for every hour in the air. Dehydration can also make you feel hungry, which can lead to excessive snacking.Stock Your Hotel Room. Once you’ve reached your destination, take time to fill your hotel room with healthy snacks. Buy bottled water, fruits, nuts, and some whole grain crackers to snack on in your room. Did you know that you can make oatmeal in most hotel rooms? Buy packets of instant oatmeal and use your hotel’s coffee maker to get hot water. Pour oatmeal and hot water into a mug, stir, and enjoy. Please enter your comment!

The extension to this inner-city heritage home is intended as a tidy, fastidious timber clad structure. An opportunity for meticulous details. The inhabitants moved from their own homes into this new house together; consolidating their extensive art collections and large extended families. Art, furniture and objects were scheduled and located during the planning process. The Dining Room comfortably accommodates twenty-four diners, located in a prime position facing the garden, and features an acoustically treated ceiling.Save this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitThe original part of the house was respectfully upgraded and restored with a new openness that connects sitting and study areas. A restrained palette was used throughout with slight shifts between spaces, creating a subtle transition between new and old and providing each room with its own feel and identity. The design balances a desire for transparency and solidity that is illustrated in the execution of the stair. At the literal and figurative centre of the house, the cranked staircase is a substantial object that permits views to the north courtyard and acts as furniture facing the kitchen.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Willem-Dirk Du ToitSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe extension features cedar cladding and straps that create a grid and detailing challenge the rest of the building responded to.

Industry waits at the school gates

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article ElaineEssery looks at renewed efforts by business and education to reach a consensuson closing the skills gap and awards low marks for effort Industryand learning need to become partners in creating a skilled workforce and alsothe right environment in which the habit of learning can flourish.Fewwould disagree with this statement, which after all has been kicked around forthe past decade, but now there does seem to be a ground swell of high-profileactivity to make it a reality.Whenthe Learning and Skills Act received Royal Assent this summer, it placedemployment interests at the heart of the National Skills Agenda. Employersnow have a critical role in saying what skills they need and how they can bestbe achieved. It makes it vital that industry and education and trainingproviders work together to equip individuals with the skills central toemployability in a rapidly changing workplace and business success.Andthe soon-to-be more influential Further Education Development Agency is keen tokeep this subject in the spotlight as it furthers links with the new Learningand Skills Council on this area. Earlierthis month it raised the subject with Ufi at its Learning 2010 conference. DrAnne Wright, chief executive of Ufi, was among those delivering papers. Shespoke at the conference on the subject of meeting the skills needs ofemployers. “Peopleneed to go on learning because of changes in the economy and working practices.We all need to recognise that. It’s a question of making sure we can meet theskill needs of employers throughout people’s working lives,” she says.ITskills are becoming increasingly important, according to Wright, but, as shepoints out, the knowledge economy still places a high premium on literacy, numeracyand other key skills. ConvergenceWrightbelieves some employers are beginning to see for the first time a convergencebetween the interests of employees in developing core skills, which they cancarry with them to another job, and their own interests in training forbusiness needs. “Evenin what you may think of as knowledge industries, including wholly IT-basedindustries, communication skills are more important than they ever were.Because people can process so much more data, communicating and working withone another become more important,” says Wright. “Whatwe need to do as quickly as we can is identify those skills that are going tobe necessary for e-business – people needing to work in teams remotely from oneanother, being able to manage people as well as processes through e-business.All that takes on a new dimension in the new economy.”Wrightbelieves it is absolutely vital that people from both industry and educationhave a good understanding of employers’ needs and become partners in thetransformation of learning which she expects to see in 10 years’ time. Itis the task of teachers in schools and colleges to lay the foundation on whichemployers can build to meet their specific needs. But is the education systemgiving employers the people and qualities they are looking for?“Firstand foremost we look for people with a good broadly-based education thatprovides the best foundation for lifelong learning in industry,” says DavidBrown, chairman of Motorola. “Secondly,to the extent that it’s possible to teach them in schools, we look for keyskills. And I mean the whole panoply of key skills, not just literacy andnumeracy.”CommunicationBrownacknowledges that communication and teamworking skills are difficult to teachyoung people, but probably the hardest of all to teach is how to manage one’sown learning. “Inmy view that’s the skill that’s in shortest supply in industrial Britain today.People are often motivated to carry on learning – particularly foremployability – and a great many employers make learning resources available. “Thebit that’s often missing in the middle is how do you connect the motivationwith the resources? How do you direct people’s learning? “Theissue is giving people the skill they need properly to select the learningthat’s right for them and follow it through,” says Brown.Inan age where people need to continue to learn at an ever-faster rate throughouttheir working lives, figuring out what learning is required can be apartnership between employers and employees. But lifelong learning is alsosomething for which young people can be better prepared by the educationsystem.Stateof mind“Atschool it would be very helpful if more and more they created a state of mindin people which was not just ready for learning to continue through employmentbut actually eager for it,” Brown believes. Andyoung people need to understand the many forms learning can take, sincelearning in industry is far from sitting in front of a blackboard with ateacher and being given facts. “Learningis more about exploring as a team how to find new ways of doing a job. In asense, inventing things is a totally valid form of learning and I would verymuch like schools to be saying that as often as they can. “Discoveringnew things, generating new insights and passing on those insights to the peopleyou work with is learning.”Wrightagrees with Brown on the importance of managing one’s own learning. One of thechallenges that Ufi has specifically addressed through learndirect is the needfor learning to be individualised and made easy. “Allour learning is self-managed in a very easy way and entirely individual –people can do it where they want and when they want so you don’t have to plantoo far ahead. “Everylearndirect learner will have their own learning log, personal to them, whichthey can use to plan and record learning. “Ifthey want they can present it to an employer and it can be used to help planlearning in the context of a company programme,” Wright explains. Ufihas also developed a diagnostic tool for learners. It asks them to look at whattheir own interests and styles are, what kind of job they may be aiming at andhelps them to plan for that. “Learndirectprovides an all-round tailored solution for individuals, but it also provides abusiness solution for companies large and small,” says Wright.Ifemployers look to schools to provide key skills and a broad base for extendedlearning, they look to the further education system to provide knowledge andskills pertinent to their industry. GarryHawkes is chairman of the NTO National Council and the newly appointed chairmanof the Edexcel Foundation, one of the country’s leading exam bodies foracademic and vocational qualifications. His 20 years as managing director andchairman of Gardner Merchant has given him an insight into what industry wantsfrom the education system. Heis concerned that the current system is driven by providers not users and hebelieves employers should talk to educators more. “Ithink business people have got to get out of their business environment andparticipate in the world at large – that’s why I got involved in Edexcel. “It’seasy to criticise, but if you employ people and have a view about education andtraining, you’ve got to get involved in the process and try and influence andchange things,” he says.Adopta collegeHecites as an example the “adopt a college” scheme, which he ran and participatedin at Gardner Merchant. It involved every senior executive linking up with acollege and working in various committees there. “They learned a lot about thecollege and its problems, but also were able to articulate the needs of ourparticular industry. It worked exceptionally well,” he says.Hawkes’sviews are echoed by key figures in government and education who spoke at aconference organised earlier this year by school leadership specialist, Heads,Teachers and Industry (HTI), and education strategist, Education and Youth(E&Y). Their report, Today’s Leaders – Tomorrow’s World, consolidates thethinking of the Feda conference on developing a national strategy for businessto work with education. “Educationneeds business, but business also needs education. In achieving long-termambitions, business needs a close relationship with the education sector morethan has ever previously been the case,” says Lord Puttnam, chairman of theGeneral Teaching Council and the National Endowment for Science, Technology andthe Arts. Workingtogether“Onlywhen businesses and schools recognise their fundamental need for each otherwill we truly begin to get the benefits of working together.”Businessesof all sizes could play a much bigger part in influencing the content of theNational Curriculum and therefore the quality of their future workforce byforging closer links with education, the HTI/E&Y report says. But93 per cent of smaller firms have no links with education. This is somethingthat Estelle Morris, School Standards Minister at the DfEE, wants to change. “Weneed a cultural change in our society so that everyone accepts theirresponsibility to be an educator. Whether you’re from a small business,medium-sized business or a large business, whether you’re working on theshopfloor, as the head of a company, or as an accountant, you’re an educator aswell,” she says.Thereis little doubt that industry and education need to come closer together. Fedachief executive, Chris Hughes, would like to see the relationship becomeseamless within the next 10 years. “Educators and employers tend to stand offeach other and a blame culture still exists,” he says. “Alot of good things go on but it doesn’t add up to continuous engagement. Itwould be good if employers started regarding providers of skills training withthe same seriousness as they do other parts of the supply chain – as less of apublic service but more as a partner. I think that would be progress.” Industry waits at the school gatesOn 1 Nov 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
