Join the Hub

With your help we can join the dots between business and education and put young people’s futures first, by raising their aspirations and making them more informed around their future decisions.  You can join the Hub as an Enterprise Adviser (EA) or support Career Education activities in local schools and colleges.

You don’t have to be an expert in Careers Advice and Guidance to be an EA.   EAs use their business knowledge and experience to work closely with a secondary school or college Careers Leader and be a critical friend who provides strategic support.  Within the EA role, you will be supported by a trained, full-time Enterprise Coordinator (EC) and a range of practical resources.

Why should I be an EA?
  • To use your experience and network to inspire students
  • Develop your interpersonal and strategy skills and gain new experiences as a role model to students
  • Deepen your connection to the local community
  • Build your company’s reputation and showcase the great work you do
What will I do?
  • Share your knowledge and experience around job opportunities, key skills and recruitment to inspire and raise aspirations of students
  • Support the school or college’s Careers Leader to develop a strategic careers plan to ensure every student receives  meaningful employer encounters and workplace experiences
  • Engage the school or college with local businesses and employers in your network to encourage their involvement in engagement activities
  • Help the school or college to focus efforts on programmes and activities that are most effective in motivating students, supporting independent choice and enabling positive outcomes for students

Enterprise Coordinators support a group of senior business volunteers, known as Enterprise Advisers, who they match with one of the school or colleges in the network.

What happens after I contact you to find out more?
