Family donation revives student programme

A new sponsorship deal means a groundbreaking course teaching Island youngsters about the world of work can continue for another three years.

Manx charity Junior Achievement has relaunched its Learn to Earn programme thanks to backing from the Chatha family.

The one-day workshop prepares students with essential skills required by employers and more than 900 students will benefit.

Junior Achievement’s chief executive Sue Cook thanked the Chatha family, saying the course helps give young people the best start possible when they enter the job market.
