Project Lumen works with schools, engaging young people in enterprise and employability activities incorporating employability skills workshops and pairing students with business mentors.

Project Lumen offers businesses the chance to work closely with schools in your local area, enabling you to promote your company to future employees and customers. There is also the opportunity for your staff to mentor young people and/or host a world of work day, inviting students into your workplace to showcase your organisation.

In its first year, Project Lumen involved more than 4,000 students from across Lincolnshire. Read more about our end-of-project celebration event here.

Details about the next phase of Project Lumen will be announced shortly. If you are a school or business looking to get involved, please register your interest by contacting us on 01522 574100 or
