Greater Manchester is investing in its young people, through the GM Enterprise Adviser Network, to prepare them for the world of work, and now your help is needed.
The GM Enterprise Adviser Network, delivered in partnership with The Careers and Enterprise Company, bridges the gap between education and employers. The programme allows business leaders to work strategically with schools to help develop and implement an effective and innovative careers and employer engagement plan.
It’s designed to make sure that young people have at least one significant meeting with an employer or experience of the world of work for every year that they are in compulsory education. Research shows that young people who have at least four encounters are 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education or training, and can earn up to 18% more during their career.
The result…schools and young people are better prepared to achieve their full potential.
The scheme is now on the look out for individuals who may be interested in becoming an Enterprise Adviser. Becoming an Enterprise Adviser is a great personal development opportunity and a hugely meaningful way to contribute to the local community. It is also a great way for a business to create links with a local school or college.
