News from Nashville

In 2014, Edge visited Nashville in the United States to witness the success of the Nashville Academies programme in tackling youth unemployment, crime rates and in raising high school graduation rates from 55% to 79%. This work inspired Edge and its partners in Nottingham to develop the hugely successful Business in Classrooms initiative, building partnerships between schools and local employers and making learning relevant to work for hundreds of  students. This year, Edge have returned to Nashville for an update. 

Sian Gresswell who is Education Advisor for Careers and Employability at Greenwood Academies Trust, reflects on what’s inspired her on the first day of the Academies of Nashville Study Visit.
