06 Sep Enterprise Advisers (Liverpool area)
I am the Enterprise Coordinator for the LEP’s Enterprise Adviser Network programme in the Liverpool area. My aim is to achieve a shared understanding (with both education and industry) of what young people need to be ready for work and hope that this will in turn lead to a strengthened local labour market, particularly in respect of the opportunities available via the identified growth sectors, and their spin offs. I am making this happen by:
Working with schools, colleges, PRU’s, academies, UTCs, Free schools in Liverpool
Auditing their Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance, Enterprise and Employability Strategy and Delivery
Working with them to identify gaps and priorities (including analysing trends in their Destination Data)
Matching each individual school with an Enterprise Adviser which suits their needs and the needs of the students
If you work in industry in the Liverpool area and would like to volunteer as an Enterprise Adviser to help senior leaders in schools develop their Enterprise and Employability Strategy; linking labour market need/skills gap and ideally the priorities to your organisation’s priorities (effectively building your own workforce), and take full advantage of networks and contacts/partners from related sectors. This includes, as much as possible, aligning the curriculum directly with local labour market need.
I know that you agree that the Enterprise Adviser Programme is a worthwhile one and I do believe that it is a sustainable model which will result in a longer term positive impact on young people’s preparation and understanding of work, reducing NEET, strengthening the workforce and attracting further investment into the area.

The time commitment for this role equates to one day a month for an academic year.
