Have your say

TWO students have joined an award-winning employability support programme.

Letitia Dollamore, from Whiteley, will study chemistry at the University of Bath and Thomas Ellis from Portchester will study economics at the University of Oxford while being supported by the social mobility programme from Lloyds Banking Group.

Chief of staff and group corporate affairs director at Lloyds Banking Group Janet Pope said: ‘I’m proud to welcome Letitia and Thomas on to the Lloyds Scholars programme.

‘Investing in education and skills is central to our wider ambition to help Britain prosper.

‘We know that attainment at school and the acquisition of work skills are key drivers of social mobility and prosperity in later life.’

The programme offers talented undergraduates financial support, paid internships and a wealth of opportunities to develop their employability skills.

Students complete 100 hours of volunteering in their communities as part of the programme.
