Home > Pledge Areas > Ellesmere Port Pledge

A wide range of opportunities with small and larger employers

Ellesmere Port has maintained significant manufacturing, energy, research and retail industries since the 1700s. The Ellesmere Port Pledge works with all of 5 of the mainstream high schools and their sixth forms, and Cheshire College South and West. We also offer support to the three special provision schools. The Ellesmere Port Pledge incorporates a range of employers big and small to provide the best recruitment opportunities to Employers and the best career education to young people. A number of our employers also support young people in Chester and vice versa.  


How we work

The Pledge Partnership team supports employers and educators to work together to help inspire young people to make well-informed choices about the subjects they choose to study and the careers they want to follow and are equipped to be successful in the labour market.
