Schemes to Link Students with Employers: the Enterprise Advisor Network
East Sussex EAN is part of a national scheme linking secondary schools and colleges with local business to help them develop skills and strategies for enterprise and careers education. Steve Baldry, HR Manager at Marshall Tufflex, said “The majority of our employees come through the UK’s education system, so as an employer, the need to engage and work with schools and colleges to build a better bridge between the world of work and education is important, especially if we’re to help shape and inform tomorrow’s workforce on our specific needs and help develop their work skills.”
• The Enterprise Advisor Network is a Skills East Sussex initiative, funded by East Sussex County Council and the Careers and Enterprise Company. Skills East Sussex is a local employment and skills partnership board. Find out more at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/ean and by searching “Skills East Sussex”.
