The North East LEP has been successful in securing funding to implement a local Enterprise Adviser network in our area. The purpose of a local Enterprise Adviser network is to create powerful, lasting connections between local businesses and the schools and colleges in the area. Enterprise Advisers are volunteers who will work directly with the leadership of individual schools and colleges. These volunteers, drawn from business and other employers, large and small, will help to develop effective employer engagement plans.
We are delighted to announce that we have now appointed an Enterprise Coordinator – Denis Heany. Denis’s role will be pivotal in helping schools and colleges to improve their careers and enterprise activities and to engage with the world of work. He will also focus everyone’s efforts on programmes and activities that are most effective in motivating young people, supporting independent choice, and supporting positive outcomes for young people.
