Rollits continue to support the Tigers Trust Enterprise Academy

The Tigers Trust's highly successful Enterprise Academy can look forward to another successful year thanks  to  continued funding from Rollits

In September 2011 the firm entered into a three-year community sponsorship agreement with the charity to provide vital financial support for the Tigers Trust's celebrated educational programme to enable them to continue to deliver an accredited award in enterprise and entrepreneurial skills.

The Enterprise Academy was set up with the aim of inspiring and challenging youngsters to think about business, using Hull City AFC as a real example that they can relate to and understand. The programme offers various courses that are promoted through local schools and that all have a recognised qualification at the end of them.

It is vital in this day and age that young people graduate from school with as diverse range of qualifications as possible and this enterprise programme prepares them for employment with a range of skills to enhance their employability.

Since the formation of the Enterprise Academy, hundreds of local youngsters have gained qualifications and with our continued support, many more can look forward to participating in the programme.

Rollits Partner Ralph Gilbert, who is a keen follower of the Tigers, is delighted that Rollits has continued its sponsorship deal with the Enterprise Academy.

"As a law firm, we are keen to get involved with initiatives within the community" said Ralph.

"We felt that supporting the Tigers Trust and their Enterprise Academy was a brilliant fit for us.  We enjoy getting involved in what the Enterprise Academy does in a hands-on way, supporting young people with their employability skills as well as helping to develop their CV writing, personal and interview skills."
