Phil McConnel is our Enterprise Advisor and is a valuable resource from industry that we can use to help support our students in developing their knowledge of the world of work.

Phil is the Deputy Partnership Director for ENGIE which is a company engaged with North East Lincolnshire Council in a Regeneration Partnership seeking to develop the region by increasing skills, jobs and infrastructure. He has a long career which has given him experience of working in the public and private sectors in a range of disciplines which is more than happy for our students and their parents to draw upon to assist them to move into their chosen careers. “At ENGIE we really see the value of developing young people to ensure that they have not only the academic knowledge to apply for jobs but also that they have employability skills which will help them to be successful when they apply” Phil said, “I am constantly and pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm, intelligence and zest for life that the students of Phoenix Park Academy have and I am looking forward to developing a robust and meaningful careers programme with the teachers”.
