Step Up

It is widely recognised that improved links between business and education is necessary to raise awareness of the breadth of career opportunities and pathways available to young people and to inspire, inform and equip them to make decisions about their future learning and careers. What is less discussed is the value to employers of engaging with schools. These include:
  • influencing the quality of future workforce
  • opportunity to develop your own employees
  • raising profile of your business / sector
  • developing recruitment channels and potential reduction in future recruitment costs
  • fresh ideas
  • delivering corporate social responsibility (CSR)
  • reduction in recruitment costs
There are many ways you can you work with schools to enrich their classroom learning and develop pupils’ employability skills; you could become an Enterprise Adviser, offer work experience, help develop lesson plans linked to your sector, support delivery of projects and much more.
