Enterprise Coordinators

We have a highly experienced team of Enterprise Coordinators who deliver high-quality support to schools and colleges across the West of England region by:

  • Supporting careers leaders: providing training and support for careers leaders in schools and colleges
  • Building networks: linking schools and colleges to business volunteers and skills providers
  • Backing the Gatsby benchmarks: supporting implementation of best practice in careers education

The eight Gatsby benchmarks provide a framework for best practice careers guidance. This framework supports schools to provide students with the best possible careers education, information, advice and guidance. The benchmarks are also the foundation of the Careers Strategy, which is a statutory requirement for secondary schools and colleges.

The Careers and Enterprise company have an extensive resource directory to support schools and Colleges. From supporting your strategic planning, to embedding careers within the curriculum. Don’t forget to check back regularly as fresh resources are continually added to the directory.
