The BERKSHIRE Enterprise Adviser Network (EAN) is celebrating its third year in providing support and guidance to schools and colleges across Berkshire.

The Enterprise Adviser Programme is a national initiative, which matches volunteers from the world of work directly with school and college leaders.

Thames Valley Berkshire LEP is working with The Careers and Enterprise Company to roll out the programme across Berkshire through a network of enterprise advisers.

Allison Giles, senior Enterprise co-ordinator said, “We are proud that we have 40 schools and colleges in Berkshire signed up to the programme and matched with an Enterprise Adviser (EA).

“EAs and schools collaborate to offer students a wide range of exciting and innovative activities including workplace visits, speed networking, supporting teachers in bringing careers into the curriculum and working with the schools Careers Leads to give strategic support.

“This is a milestone achievement and goes to show the value of business in education, along with the strategic support that local employer involvement can bring to the success of careers in schools.”
