ELATT shortlisted for the Lord Mayor's Dragon Award

ELATT was thrilled to be shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award Community Partnership Award for its partnership with leading tech firm Opus 2 International.

Following an introduction by volunteer brokerage, City Action, ELATT partnered with Opus 2 International to equip Londoners with the relevant digital skills to meet business demand and fill roles in the digital economy. As a specialist technology company, Opus 2 International, have worked with ELATT to update their curriculum, and provide industry briefings, employment seminars, mentoring and work placements. Over the past three years Opus 2 International staff have worked with 100 ELATT students. 26% of students from the Opus 2-led workshops, seminar and mentoring programme progressed into employment.

From the work placement programme, 40% of students were offered full-time, paid employment with Opus 2.

Opus 2 is now working with ELATT to provide apprenticeship opportunities for vulnerable young people, and have already taken on their first apprentice.

Congratulations to our long-term charitable partner the Bromley By Bow Centre for winning the award for their outstanding partnership with Investec.
