A flexible, 24/7 training resource for the Birmingham Enterprise Adviser Network, as part of the UK-wide Careers & Enterprise Company initiative

To get here, you will already be a prospective Enterprise Adviser for Birmingham schools, and one of the Enterprise Coordinators may already have matched you.

Enterprise Advisers are our senior business volunteers. They work closely with a local school or college to develop a careers plan that puts opportunities with local employers at the heart of a young person’s education.

Being an Enterprise Adviser can be incredibly rewarding. It’s a great opportunity to:

  • use your experience and network to inspire young people and improve their chance of getting a job
  • address skills gaps in the local and national job market
  • deepen your connection to the local community
  • build your company’s reputation
  • develop your own interpersonal and strategy skills

In addition to this training, we will also hold workshops and face-to-face training. Please note, you will also need to complete a DBS check

During this online course, you will learn more about:

  • Research and evidence for careers interventions
  • the Careers & Enterprise Company
  • Benchmarking your school
  • Auditing your school
  • The role of teachers in careers guidance
  • Changes to GCSE grades in the UK
  • Record-keeping and communicating with your school
  • the local Landscape of careers and enterprise provision

At the end of this course, you will be more confident to start the strategic Adviser process with your school
