Become an Enterprise Adviser

The Enterprise Adviser Network is a national network of senior business volunteers connected to secondary schools and colleges to prepare young people for the world of work.

Work closely with a local secondary school or college to create strong links between employment and education, influence the careers agenda in schools and inspire the next generation in businesses to help shape the future workforce.

"66% businesses believe work experience is critical for recruitment (CBI)"

“Encouraging young people to be entrepreneurs is not just a job for teachers and parents. Employers can really add value too by working together and helping to influence and shape young people’s experiences.”
“By doing this we are assisting young people to build the skills needed for a vibrant economy in the future.”
Richelle Schuster, Enterprise Adviser
