1,300+ schools and colleges have signed up to our network
A third of schools and colleges in England have signed up to our network to develop school and employer engagement plans.
The network is underpinned by our Enterprise Coordinators, full-time, highly trained professionals who we co-fund with the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). We have more than 80 Enterprise Coordinators and in a congested school or college day, they make a real difference. They work with clusters of 20 schools and colleges to build careers and employer engagement plans. To date, we are live in 37 out of 38 LEPs in all corners of the country.
The results to date from our network have been very encouraging. We have seen a three-fold increase in employer engagement in plans among schools and colleges that have joined our network – from 15% with plans in place to 45%.
