Pledges to date

Be Involved is an initiative that enables employers to support the employability of our young people and the future workforce.

By signing up we aim to create a directory of businesses and other organisations who pledge to work together across the county in supporting local schools and apprenticeships – whether you are hiring a new apprentice or already have an apprentice in your business.

Being part of Be Involved means your business can support the residents of Wiltshire and inspire a future workforce including a pipeline of talent from Wiltshire Schools.

When you sign up to the initiative, a member of Wiltshire Council’s Employment and Skills service will be in contact to discuss what support your business is interested in. We will then be in contact with you when opportunities arise that you have registered an interest in, and we will also contact you from time to time to see how things are going.

If you would like to get involved please fill out the pledge form below or contact us at

Case Studies

MG Cannon

“We pledged because MG Cannons ethos is too involve the community wherever possible, our customers are important to us and we like to give back. Whether that is working with charities, schools, chambers of commerce’s or via mentoring. We find it also a great way to up skill our staff for example, attending school’s fairs is not something they may have done before, attending those events gives them a new set of skills.”

 Juliet Harris – Group Marketing Coordinator

Innov8 Sportz CIC

“It’s our ethos as a business to engage with communities, removing social, religious and economic barriers so pledging to Be Involved made a lot of sense for us. We often find within sport there isn’t always an opportunity to give those with long term health or disabilities a chance to join in. Therefore, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to include others.”

Terry Bathe – CEO

Greatwood Charity

“I have supported Employment and Skills with their Post 16 Careers Fair for looked after children which was one of the best I have attended, it’s great for us to get the message out there and support those that need a little more guidance. We have some great success stories with care leavers, Abdul came to us speaking little English and is now working with the Queen’s horses! Crystal is also another success for us, she is just starting a Diploma at the Northern Racing College in Doncaster after being inspired by her time at Greatwood.”

KP Garage & Bodyshop

“We currently have one apprentice who has just completed her Level 2 Vehicle Body which means she is already part qualified, she will continue study for two more years. In the future we hope to employ more apprentices, but we are currently looking for skilled staff to support those apprentices as and when they enter the business using a staggered approach.”

Avon Protection

“We are aware there is a STEM skills shortage and being in a rural area we are fighting for talent, so we understand the need to build the pipeline of future talent. We hope we can help young people understand what possibilities are out there. Once they meet us or visit Avon they will know we are out there and a viable option for their career. “

Clair Randall – Corporate Communications Manager
