Supporting Careers Education in Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland
Statistics show that the more encounters a young person has with the world of work, the less likely they are to be NEET at 19 (not in education employment or training). Specifically, four or more meaningful encounters with an employer or workplace can significantly improve a young person's chance of realising their aspirations and making an informed choice about the future. Now, more than ever before, it is important to prepare young people for employment, both in terms of qualifications and transferable skills.
The Greater Lincolnshire LEP links local businesses with local schools and colleges, to ensure that young people have a good understanding of their labour market and possible job opportunities following education. It also provides a pipeline of talent for employers to fill future roles and job vacancies. Employers, schools and colleges can get access to a dedicated Enterprise Coordintor in their local area.
Enterprise Adviser Network (EAN) and Careers Hub
The Greater Lincolnshire LEP is working in partnership the Careers and Enterprise Company, with support from Lincolnshire County Council, North Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Council to create a network of high calibre volunteers from local businesses. Volunteers are known as 'Enterprise Advisers'.
The Enterprise Adviser Network enables the volunteers to work directly with the senior leadership team in secondary schools and colleges. Their involvement links the school to the world of work and adds value to the school or college's careers, enterprise and employer engagement strategy. Find out more about what an Enterprise Adviser does here.
The Careers Hub element to the scheme brings in a ring-fenced resource to provide funding for careers related activities and events, that will benefit all schools and colleges in Greater Lincolnshire.
If you are a teacher or Career Leader and would like to know more about the Enterprise Adviser Network, please contact us.
