Our Enterprise Adviser Network bridges the gap between education and employers.

The network is made up of Enterprise Coordinators who we co-fund with the Local Enterprise Partnerships. Enterprise Coordinators are trained professionals who work with schools and colleges to build careers and employer engagement plans. Each school and college is supported by an Enterprise Adviser - a senior volunteer from business - who helps unlock relationships with other local businesses and provides strategic counsel to the headteacher or college principal.

In our first two years of operation, more than 1,600 schools and colleges across the country have signed up to our network and more are joining all the time.

The table and chart give a breakdown of where those schools and colleges are located.
