In this the first episode of a new series on Bridging The Gap I’m talking to two people from The Oaks Specialist College based in the UK. This episode is really about vision. Gordon Tillman, the CEO, discusses why The Oaks came into existence and its role not only in changing the lives of the young people it supports but also changing the perceptions of businesses and communities. Jackie Thurtle, the Project Manager at The Oaks, discusses the challenges with bringing the vision into reality and the importance of reaching out to like minded individuals and organisations. The Oaks has a clear vision to bridge the gap by developing strategies to ensure they help as many young people as they can progress from school into the world of work as well as helping them build the skills they need to live the life they want.
