News: U-Explore impresses MPs


A local MP and Shadow Treasury Minister visited U-Explore in Rotherham this week to learn more about the company's innovative approach to careers guidance following news that youth unemployment figures have hit a record high.

Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey and Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury Rachel Reeves MP received a first-hand look at how U-Explore is working to ensure that all young people are able to progress into suitable employment and training, regardless of their circumstance, and make informed, educated decisions about their futures.

Based in Templeborough, U-Explore specialises in enabling schools to deliver reality based careers information, advice and guidance. Their U-Explore national school product is an innovative software solution which engages with young people through cutting edge media.

The MP's were also introduced to the work that U-Explore has been doing to support both foundation learners and young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) - with projects already well underway in Sheffield and Leicestershire, respectively.

James Frith, managing director of U-Explore, said: "It is always good to be asked to show off the work we are doing to help improve young people's chances of finding employment. We are thrilled to do so with such important national figures. Youth unemployment and getting young people ready for work is such an important aspect of the work we do."

U-Explore has recently appointed Adele Holmes as finance and operations manager.

Adele has over 15 years in accounting and management within similar sized organisations achieving growth. She brings with her established experience in designing and implementing successful financial models.

Adele said: "I'm thrilled to have been appointed the Finance and Operations Manager of U-Explore. The flagship U-Explore product is unique, exciting and is already available in one third of secondary schools in England. I hope we will soon be in all of them!"
