The Black Country Skills Factory aims to link all Black Country secondary schools and Colleges including SEND schools and Pupil referral units with an Enterprise Adviser by July 2021.
What are Enterprise Advisers and what do they do?
Enterprise Advisers are volunteers from businesses and the public sector, organisations of all sizes including the self-employed. Working alongside the Coordinators and directly with school and college leaders, they are responsible for helping schools and colleges build careers and enterprise and employer engagement plans drawing on their own local business networks.
The Enterprise Advisers work alongside the Coordinators to support schools to identify and plan actions to ensure the schools are better able to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks.
