Apprentice and mentor talking


One of the most important strands of our work is to connect business and education. We need support from local employers to helps us to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work. Businesses large or small can get involved and can volunteer for as little as an hour!

An EA works strategically with the Careers Leader for a minimum of 1 year, supporting them to develop their careers programme. An EA may provide an employer’s perspective, support with employer engagement, provide an insight into their sector, or support with strategic planning.
