Information for Business- Enterprise Advisers

Despite ongoing high levels of unemployment, businesses across the Capital are continuing to struggle to fill their direct entry roles. It is essential that the Capital’s next generation are better prepared to enter the world of work and as the Mayor’s recent London Ambitions report showed, this can be achieved through aspirational careers guidance and improved collaboration between business and students.

Through delivery of London’s Enterprise Adviser Network, Team London & The Mayor’s Fund for London are delighted to be bringing together business and education. The Enterprise Adviser Network will be engaging a pan-London network of high-calibre business volunteers to support teachers in London’s schools to design and deliver inspirational and impactful careers education strategy. To do this, we need your help!

What is the Enterprise Adviser programme?

Launching in October 2015, the Enterprise Adviser Network will work with teachers to develop and implement a whole school careers education plan through matching them with volunteers from the world of work.

The volunteers work as advisers to the school’s nominated lead teacher to develop a comprehensive strategy and plan for careers education which enables all students to engage in the many opportunities to build their understanding of the skills required for the world of work.

How do you get involved?

Over the next 6 months, 150 dedicated business volunteers will be recruited and trained, from across a wide range of industries, to become Enterprise Advisers. Please register your interest by emailing: enterpriseAdvisers@London.gov.uk and one of the Enterprise Coordinators will be in contact.
