HillsSIP has changed its name to 2Realise

RBF Member Hills School Industry Partnership (HillsSIP) has announced a new name for its organisation: 2Realise.  The story behind the name change, below, has been taken from 2Realise’s newsletter issued today. For more information contact 2Realise or visit the website.

The Hills Schools Industry Partnership began operating in 1998 when it was established by the Hills Chamber of Commerce to facilitate work placement learning for Year 11 and 12 students. Since that time the range of services and the area in which the organisation operates has expanded.

In late 21011 HillsSIP recognised the changing landscape within the not-for-profit sector required the organisation to adapt to ensure its long term sustainability.
