Enterprise Advisor – Richard Egan

Creator & Founder of REAL Leaders.

 ‘I feel I can make a real difference to Gospel Oak and have enjoyed working with staff to develop links with businesses in the community and beyond. The students are curious, willing to learn and looking for opportunities for self-development, so I urge any employers who are looking for talent or want to promote their industry to get in touch.

I run a social enterprise training people to be mentors and to ensure we help shape the best mentors. We support and guide our mentors to mentor and work with young people with a criminal history, often referred to as “gang members”. Our programmes make sure that these young people meet and spend meaningful time with career professionals.

I bring all of my contacts and experience to support the careers programme at Gospel Oak School as an Enterprise Advisor.’


Enterprise Coordinator – Sally Stone

Work Related Learning Consultant

As well as an Enterprise Co-ordinator, I work for the Education and Business Partnerships withing SIPS Education. In an ever-evolving economy, employers are increasingly looking for specific skills across their workforce, and my role here to support and prepare young people for the world of work; help them learn new skills and gain a practical insight into what lies ahead.

I have unique and close links with business and commerce, which helps me in my role supporting Gospel Oak School.

Gospel Oak School is a member of the Black Country Careers Hub, and is succeeding to meet the Government’s Careers Education Strategy. Any employers wanting to work with the school should not hesitate, the careers programme is well-organised and managed.’
