Working as an Enterprise Advisor for Parklands High School
In my capacity Working as an Enterprise Advisor for Parklands High School it has become apparent more so than ever schools are in need of help for years 9 to 11. With so many events cancelled connecting our future workforce to prospective employers the schools are looking to collaborate with businesses for virtual events.
Here is how you can get involved! Lancashire Careers Hub : Unlocking the potential of Lancashire’s future workforce by connecting education and business. All secondary schools and FE colleges have to deliver a robust careers programme of information, advice and guidance under the Government’s National Careers Strategy. Lancashire Careers Hub provides free support to those in education and from the world of work who are delivering this.
We work with 154 secondary schools, colleges and special schools across Lancashire. The primary aim to improve the career prospects of thousands of young people.
How can you support: Become an Enterprise Adviser.
You will support and work with an individual school and their senior leadership teams in shaping the schools’ career strategy. They are there to provide an external voice and to be the schools’ critical and supportive adviser.
An Enterprise Adviser is also able to use their own network and contacts to support a school’s career activities, or some even chose to be directly involved in supporting career activities. Support with career events. Subject to your capacity, you could support with employer encounters at mock interviews, dragons den challenges, speed networking, careers talks. Provide work experience, placements or mock assessment sessions. Enterprise Coordinators can talk you through these and other options including the remote offer requested by schools currently.
