In December the Greater Lincolnshire Public Service Compact will be staging a good practice event to raise the profile of collaborative working with the private sector to deliver public services.

It is anticipated that other high profile public service professionals will be 'booked in' to make a contibution. There will also be an opportunity for you to discuss with colleagues as to how your organisation could benefit from enagaging with outsourcing arrangements. The event will start at 0800 (with a bacon roll and a coffee!) and will conclude at 1030.

To reserve a delegate place at this exciting event all you need to do is  email stating your intention to attend. I will book you in and send you the confirmed agenda in mid November and also full joining instructions about a week before the event.

27/02/2017   The Big Assembly: On line careers fair 7th March

Dear Colleagues, friends and associates.

As the Apprenticeship Ambassador for Lincolnshire I do have an urgent request this week which I really need your support with please.

 During National Apprenticeship Week, ‘The Big Assembly’

This GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt aims to set the record for the largest online careers advice seminar EVER

Schools, young people, parents, careers advisors and employers from across the nation are invited at 08.45, on 7 March 2017 during National Apprenticeship Week to take part in ‘The Big Assembly’ a live video stream to thousands across the UK wanting to find out more about apprenticeships and career options post 16.

As you can imagine to ensure we get enough interest in the event and we need over 5,000 registrations, so as much marketing and media coverage and schools involvement this week is needed.  We need people talking, tweeting and as much social media activity such as face book.  We are looking for a mass involvement next week on the 7th March at 08.45 to achieve this GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. 

Please find attached the social media guide, press release and information for The Big Assembly.  Can I encourage you to promote / push and use the social media content within your own networks to make the event as widely known as possible.  I have highlighted below how to register and the differing media options we have and could use.

How to Register

Registration is via

You can find us on twitter @bigassembly and use #bigassembly

I have also attached a couple of ‘sneak preview’ videos which will be used on the day in the Big Assembly live video stream:

This is a short 15 second clip with Pharmacy Trainee Emily Wilby from Boots, she says what she loves and gives advice about what to do if you're interested in apprenticeships.




Many thanks for your support and please do pass this email on to your own networks.

Kind regards  .. Mike
