A new Government-led initiative, the Careers & Enterprise Company has been set up to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work, by linking business/ employer volunteers (Enterprise Advisers) with local schools and colleges.
The LLEP’s role
The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) has been selected to deliver the flagship of the ‘Enterprise Advisers Network’ within the Leicestershire region.
Working in partnership with the Careers & Enterprise Company, the LLEP’s role is to localise and tailor the programme to meet the needs of Leicester and Leicestershire.
The Enterprise Coordinator sits at the heart of the network, harnessing the relationship between education and business.
The purpose of the local Enterprise Adviser Network is to create powerful, lasting connections between local businesses and the schools/colleges in the area.
The network will help simplify engagement between schools, colleges and employers and stimulate more employer engagement where required.
