Enterprise Adviser (EA) Network

What is an EA?

Enterprise Advisers are experienced professionals from all industries who work directly with a school’s senior management team to help them develop their careers education programme.

They do this by providing insight into the demands of the industry and the contemporary world of work, helping schools and colleges focus their efforts, and facilitating links with local businesses and employers.

This work is vital in helping schools and colleges to deliver relevant and inspiring careers education.

Why join the EA Network

This is a hugely worthwhile volunteer post whereby your time, experience, expertise, relationship building skills and passion for developing and supporting the workforce of tomorrow, will bring about positive change in local schools and colleges. Your role as an Enterprise Adviser can support young peoples’ pathways into your industry and shape their careers. 

Bridging the gap between the world of work and education, you will work with the Careers Leader and wider senior leaders of your assigned school or college to create opportunities for young people.
