A new Government-led initiative, the Careers & Enterprise Company has been set up to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work, by linking business/ employer volunteers (Enterprise Advisers) with local schools and colleges.

The purpose of the local Enterprise Adviser Network is to create powerful, lasting connections between local businesses and the schools/colleges in the area.

The network will help simplify engagement between schools, colleges and employers and stimulate more employer engagement where required.
