Information for Employers


Many young people at schools and colleges in England have very little knowledge of and limited connection to the world of work. As a result, they do not understand the relevance of education nor the skills they need for the future. By becoming an Enterprise Adviser and working with our Enterprise Coodinators, you can help to promote the skills needed by the future workforce.


Enterprise Advisers are the cornerstone of the Programme. They form a nationwide network of high calibre volunteers with experience of employment or self-employment. Supported by an Enterprise Coordinator, the Enterprise Advisers work closely with the senior leadership team of a specific schools or colleges to:


  • Support the development of a whole school strategy for careers, enterprise and employer engagement
  • Navigate the range of possible employer interactions to engage students with the world of work
  • Focus efforts on programmes and activities that are most effective in motivating young people, supporting independent choice, and supporting positive outcomes for young people.
