The Eric Wright Learning Foundation
The Eric Wright Learning Foundation’s aim is to support and deliver the Employment and Skills element of the Eric Wright Charitable Trust’s strategic objectives.
The Eric Wright Learning Foundation’s three stage approach starts with the early years and inspiring children and adults to be the best they can be, presenting our industry and all the opportunities available. We support progress from those early interactions through to education and positive learning experiences that reflect a real work environment. Finally, we create opportunities for meaningful careers though our relationships with industry employers covering all disciplines. Several learners have already continued into employment with the Eric Wright Group and our local supply chain.
The Eric Wright Learning Foundation sponsors a ‘real work environment’ in partnership with Preston’s College for students studying vocational courses. The Eric Wright Learning Foundation also supports apprenticeships within the Eric Wright Group and attends careers events throughout the UK, unlocking the potential within our local communities.
