The New Anglia Enterprise Adviser Network is a national programme being delivered at a local level across Norfolk and Suffolk, recruiting senior business leaders to work voluntarily with secondary schools and colleges as ‘Enterprise Advisers’. Enterprise Advisers work strategically with senior leaders in schools and colleges, supporting them to develop and enhance their business engagement plans. The aim, to improve the quality and consistency of careers, work related & enterprise education delivered to students and to broker activities with businesses and enterprise providers. The volunteers will bring their wealth of knowledge and experience of the world of work to help develop a comprehensive action plan for careers education, fully supporting young people between 11 and 18 years old.
The New Anglia Enterprise Adviser Programme has been developed from Lord Young’s ‘Enterprise for All’ report which highlighted the importance of “motivating young people to learn and excel in their education…to see the relevance of their studies”. With support from the national Careers and Enterprise Company, the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership working through its partners in Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils is delivering this national programme across the East.
