The Swindon & Wiltshire Enterprise Adviser Network is supporting powerful and lasting business engagement in education across the Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership area.
Swindon and Wiltshire Enterprise Adviser Network overview
The purpose of the national Enterprise Adviser Network and the local Swindon & Wiltshire Network is to create strong and lasting connections between local businesses and the schools/colleges in the Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership area to help further develop and support careers and enterprise activities. As part of the National Careers & Enterprise Company Programme, this initiative aims to –
- Support increased business engagement in education and future employability of young people.
- Create a national network of brokerage between employers and schools, giving greater consistency and coverage.
- Complement and enhance existing activities, building upon strong provider partnerships and developing a new and innovative approach.
- Ensure even coverage of impartial, high quality Careers, Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG) exists for all young people to access across the LEP area.
Volunteer Enterprise Advisers drawn from businesses across Swindon & Wiltshire are working with school/college Senior Leadership Teams to help create or enhance employer engagement strategies for careers & enterprise and to help raise the aspirations of our young people.
Becoming an Enterprise Adviser is a unique opportunity to support a school or college in improving opportunities for young people, and it is also a chance to join a network of like-minded peers.
Clusters of schools, colleges and Enterprise Advisers are supported by a full time Enterprise Coordinator who brings together the schools and employers in the area.
