About the partnership

Through our relationship with the East London Business Alliance (ELBA) we have developed a partnership with Lister Community School in Newham.

Lister is an under performing school with a higher-than-average proportion of socially disadvantaged students. Most students come from ethnic minority backgrounds, with the largest groups being Bangladeshi, Pakistani and African. Over half of the students speak English as an additional language.

Super learning days

We have hosted a number of 'Super Learning Days' with students from Lister. The ‘Super Learning Days’ aim to raise aspirations, provide exposure to the wide range of careers in construction and to inspire belief that students can follow the same career pathways as the employees they meet.

“The experience today gives us all a lovely feeling in our soul, that we are doing something good and worthwhile. We appreciate the opportunity to take part in such a fantastic event.”

"Thank you so much for the fantastic day with our Year 8s. They were buzzing about it all the way home. The day really gave them a window into the working world of ISG and opened their eyes to the different opportunities available for them within the construction industry."
