Our national network connects schools and colleges with employers and careers programme providers and supports them to work together to provide effective work experiences for young people. 

How the network supports schools, colleges and employers

The network is made up of Enterprise Coordinators who we co-fund with Local Enterprise Partnerships. Enterprise Coordinators are trained professionals who work with clusters of 20 schools and colleges to build careers plans and make connections to local and national employers.  

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.

Enterprise Advisers use their knowledge of the local business landscape to support the headteacher or careers team to develop an effective careers plan and to create opportunities with their business contacts in the area for their school or college’s students.
