Enterprise Advisers work to: support the development of a whole school strategy for careers, enterprise and employer engagement; provide access to their local business networks; help schools and colleges to focus efforts on programmes and activities that are most effective in inspiring and supporting positive outcomes for young people.
The Lancashire Enterprise Adviser Network comprises of volunteers drawn from businesses, both large and small. The volunteers, named Enterprise Advisers, are matched with individual schools and colleges to develop effective employer engagement strategies and plans. Clusters of schools, colleges and Enterprise Advisers are supported by a full time Enterprise Coordinator. We have six Enterprise Coordinators working across the Lancashire LEP area.
