COMMUNITY leaders have teamed up with a school federation to host an inspirational' day for youngsters.
The Leek Federation Sixth Form have teamed up with councillor Sybil Ralphs, leader of the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and Karen Bradley, MP for Staffordshire Moorlands to help promote an innovative event for local young people.
As a part of the Leek Federation's 'Inspire' programme dozens of local businesses and services will get together at Leek High Specialist Technology School this month to share their experiences and success stories with the aim of inspiring young people in the Staffordshire Moorlands to achieve their potential.
Karen said: "Inspire will enhance students' knowledge of the work place and prepare them for jobs. Most importantly, it will show them what they can achieve and encourage them to reach really high standards."
Dan Owen, director of the Federation Sixth Form, added: "We want local businesses to come to inspire the students and also to create longer term links with the Federation.
"The Staffordshire Moorlands has great students with huge potential and we want to inspire them to fulfil it."
The Inspire event will take place on Friday (October 18) between 1pm and 3.15pm.
