Call for business leaders to work with schools

THE Black Country LEP is seeking high calibre volunteers from business, employed or self-employed, to fulfil the role of Enterprise Adviser as part of the Black Country Careers and Enterprise Adviser initiative.

Enterprise Advisers will encourage schools to explore a wide range of employer interactions as part of a wider school strategy of careers, enterprise and employer engagement to help address the lack of knowledge and limited engagement with the world of work faced by many young people.

Supported by an Enterprise Coordinator, the Adviser will work closely with the senior leadership team of a specific school, academy or college to:

  • Support the development of a whole school strategy for careers

  • Provide access to their local business networks

  • Help schools and colleges to focus efforts on programmes and activities that are most effective in motivating young people, by supporting independent choice and supporting positive outcomes for them.
