MORE businesses must support head teachers to develop staff leadership skills if they are to produce the workforce of the future, the business charity Business in the Community told a conference hosted by Goldman Sachs yesterday.

Goldman Sachs International co-CEO Michael Sherwood said his bank was pleased to offer its support as a national champion of the charity’s Business Class initiative, which brings business and schools together.

“We recognise the importance of developing a skills system able to respond to the needs of individuals, communities and a dynamic – and changing – economy,” he said. “I know I speak on behalf of everyone involved when I say that we take our responsibility for making ‘Business Class’ a resounding – and ongoing – success very seriously.”
