Council support for careers education

Burnley Council is to help fund careers education for young people in Burnley.

Developed and funded by The Careers & Enterprise Company, and overseen by the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership's Skills and Employment Hub, the Careers Hub covers three Lancashire regions – Burnley, Pendle and Blackpool. It will be made up of local schools and colleges working together with universities, training providers, employers and career professionals to improve careers education.

More long-term empty houses to be brought back into use

Another group of long-term vacant houses in Burnley are set to be brought back into use again through Burnley Council’s Empty Homes programme.

The council’s executive is recommended to agree the compulsory purchase of 13 properties in the borough which have been long-term empty, in one case for more than 20 years.

If agreed, the houses will be acquired for re-sale and, once renovated, reoccupied with the proceeds being re-invested back into buying and refurbishing further properties.

Burnley Council retains its Gold Investors in People status

Burnley Council has retained a top national honour for the way it develops its employees.

The local authority was put under the microscope by an independent assessor and came out with flying colours, retaining its Investors in People (IIP) Gold award for the third time running.

The major accolade is the result of continuous improvement since the council first attained Gold status in 2012. The council has also retained its Health and Wellbeing IIP award which it’s also held for the past six years.
