Careers Champions

Hello and welcome to the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Careers Hub ‘Careers Champion’ page!

If employers are not positioned to reflect the fast-changing labour market, who else is?

World class careers education doesn’t exist without the input and insight from industry leaders.

So, what is a Career Champion?

A Career Champion is an individual from the business community who would like to volunteer their time no matter how big or small. You can work with a local school or college in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to help inspire young people about the world of work.

 

So, what does this entail?

Being a Career Champion is voluntary so there is no obligation to take part in any number of career activities each year. The Career Champion role is ‘flexible’ which means you can support a variety of career education activities and events within schools and colleges that fit around your busy working schedule.

 

Are there any benefits for me and the business?

  • Raising your own brand awareness and profile in the local community
  • Establishing potential links to support your own talent pipelines and future workforce
  • Gaining and sharing ideas with young people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
  • Showing your commitment to social value in your local community
  • Careers Professional Development for you and/or your staff
  • Supporting the local business and education community
  • Giving something back – playing your part in supporting and shaping young people’s careers and plans.

 

So, how do I get involved?

Gain instant access to our Career Education ‘Toolkit’ which is made up of relevant resources, templates, checklists, a digital badge and the offer of a virtual bitesize CPD session to answer any questions you may have, along with the chance to meet other Champions who have signed up to help make a difference.

If you would like to get involved, please complete the information below and one of the Team will be in touch.
