Solent Enterprise Adviser Network

Through this national initiative we are working to link every mainstream secondary school and college in the Solent with a volunteer from the world of work.

The ‘Enterprise Adviser’ engages strategically with the Careers Leader, supporting them to ensure the school and college community have access to meaningful employer encounters and experiences.

These volunteers can offer real value to a school or college that they are linked with. Bringing their knowledge and experience from the world of work to an education setting, an Enterprise Adviser is a resource that can be beneficial in a number of ways.

“I’m honoured to be part of this ground-breaking project that will help raise the aspirations of young people. As employers we expect a lot from our young people so it’s only right we support them before they enter the world of work. I admire the dedication of the teachers at both Oak Lodge and Greenwood Schools. They are committed to giving every child the best start in life so I’m delighted to be their joint Enterprise Adviser.”   LEON MEAD Enterprise Adviser at Oak Lodge School and Greenwood, New Forest
