Schools look to the future in business


Over 100 schools from across the region descended on Liverpool Football Club as it played host to the School Business Manager Conference.

Business managers from primary and secondary schools are invited to the conference to keep up to date with new trends, listen to talks from leading professionals and visit exhibiting businesses. The day focused on the emerging changes that are providing new challenges to the role of school business management professionals such as the safeguarding CCS framework information and general HR and payroll.

Attendees also got the opportunity to meet fellow colleagues and visit the different exhibitors’ stands, which included Copyrite Systems. Copyrite Systems, title sponsor of the Educate Awards, showcased its printing software on the day and received ‘substantial interest’ in the technology.

5000 Reasons


Staff from Copyrite Systems presented a cheque for over £5,000 to Roy Castle Cancer Foundation.

Named as the company’s chosen charity for 2017, Copyrite donated a percentage of sales from their printing products to the lung cancer charity, which raised an impressive £5,000.

Copyrite Systems are one of the UK’s most innovative companies which are passionate about collaboration, technology and communication.

Both companies are lending their support to this year’s Educate Awards, as headline sponsors.

The money raised will go towards Roy Castle’s charity work, which includes the youth charity Cut Films.

Cut Films is a unique project which aims to prevent children and young people from smoking.

A Cut Films youth worker, with professional filmmaking skills, helps groups of young people to create two-minute short films. The brief is simple: the film should persuade their peers not to smoke.

Founded in Liverpool in 1990, Roy Castle is the only UK charity to focus solely on lung cancer care. It funds more than £1 million worth of research every year and offers information and support through its helpline and support groups.

Paula Chadwick, chief executive of Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, said: “Tackling the UK’s biggest cancer killer is a tough challenge. Copyrite Systems is helping us to educate people about key symptoms, such as a persistent cough which lasts for three weeks or more.

“The more we inform people about lung cancer, the more lives we will save. Thank you so much.”

Copyrite Systems wins new contract with The City of Liverpool College


Copyrite Systems has secured a new contract with one of the city’s largest education and training providers.

After working with The City of Liverpool College for 18 years, Copyrite Systems has won a new contract to manage the college’s print and technology equipment across its six campuses.

The college’s £100m campus offers students access to some of the best training, learning and leisure facilities in the country. Over 20,000 students benefit from modern, purpose build facilities including fully equipped workshops and studios.

By combining innovative technology with a strong focus on best practice, service and partnerships, Copyrite Systems enables clients to better manage their entire paper and electronic document input, output, manipulation and storage.

The new contract reaffirms Copyrite’s longstanding relationship with the College, who have been working together for nearly two decades.

Copyrite works with many of the college’s electrical students and invites them on work placements at the company’s head office in Speke. As a result of the placements, many students have gone on to gain full-time employment at Copyrite.

Established by Tom Doyle in 1992, Copyrite Systems has been operating for 25 years and its team works in the education sector to transform learning environments and to increase productivity. Copyrite is the headline sponsor of this year’s Educate Awards, alongside Ricoh UK.

Building on Success


St Margaret’s Academy (SMA) has successfully secured work placements with some of the UK’s leading businesses.

Year 10 students at SMA will be given the opportunity to work with some of the country’s most influential businesses, as part of the school’s newly launched ‘work inspiration programme’.

The Aigburth school has worked tirelessly to forge important relationships with business leaders, both locally and nationally, having invested increased resources into its careers provision this year.

Organisations that have offered their support of the programme include Tesco, Boots and Barnardo’s, as well as Liverpool John Moores University, Copyrite Systems, and Wray Bros locally.

The ‘work inspiration programme’ will see the first cohort of 60 students take part in a series of half day sessions from February as part of an 18-week placement scheme.

The initiative was launched last year, with pupils attending weekly ‘world of work’ careers talks delivered by a range of industry professionals.

The school’s enhanced careers provision aims to lead the way amongst Merseyside schools, offering pupils the opportunity to explore future careers options before embarking upon their Sixth Form studies.

Greg McLean, SMA’s dedicated careers and post 16 data manager, said: “In such a highly competitive job market, it is vital that students are given the opportunity to consider their options from an early stage. Starting careers provision in lower school, means that pupils can explore these interests and passions before embarking upon their GCSE’s and post-16 study, helping them to pick the right courses and qualifications for their chosen field.

“This ensures that pupils choose the right path to fulfil their career aspirations, whether this be through gaining a university degree, or through embarking upon a vocational course or apprenticeship scheme.”

Chris Cooke, assistant director of Sixth Form and UCAS co-ordinator, added: “At St Margaret’s we want to make sure that all of our pupils have the right skillset to help them progress and succeed. Having the right industry experience will help students develop their employability skills and I am delighted that so many industry professionals have been able to offer their support.

“I am confident that the ‘work inspiration programme’ will help students focus on where they want to be and give them the determination to get there.”
