SKILL! Our Commitment To The Next Generation

We are excited to announce our new partnership with award-winning social enterprise Visionpath, to create powerful connections between our business and the next generation.

Launched in 2008 Visionpath have engaged over 5,000 young people and professionals across the UK. Their flagship youth programme, SKILL!, enables young people aged 14-18 to become more confident and employable by working with professionals across industries – including our own world of media and outdoor advertising – to devise and pitch new business ideas.

Patrick Philpott, Founder of Visionpath, said of the new partnership:

"We’re really proud to be working with Primesight on SKILL! this year. As one of the most vibrant media brands in the UK, they’ll bring a new dimension to our programme and together we’ll help hundreds of young Londoners become future-ready. We’re also really excited by the opportunity to help Primesight’s people to connect with and learn from the next generation over the coming year. It promises to be a great partnership!"

Our CEO, Naren Patel, celebrated the collaboration, saying:

"Primesight are excited about partnering with Visionpath to support the great work they do with young people in our communities. This is a great opportunity for our staff to use their experience to mentor young people and develop their own skills and abilities as well."

We are joining other SKILL! programme partners including the multinational support services group Babcock and leading media agencies Mindshare and the7stars. If you would like to know more about the programme and how your organisation could be involved, please get in touch with Visionpath.
