Do you have staff that can talk to and inspire young people? Could they explain with passion what it takes to secure the best jobs in your industry, and to be successful?
NEP is seeking inspirational professionals working locally who can to talk to students in schools about their first-hand experience of job satisfaction and career progression – in other words, to take on the role of Inspirer.
Engineers, web and graphic designers, project managers, logistics experts, food and drink manufacturers as well as those working in customer service, financial services, healthcare and IT are all needed to become Inspirers; for which the demand in schools is high countywide.
The Inspirers initiative is backed by the Enterprise Advisers programme – a pilot undertaken by NEP working with government to link key business people with schools to act as a business mentor and support the school at a strategic level to understand the local economy, growth sectors, skills shortages and key issues facing business.
Engagement with education good for business
Northamptonshire schools and colleges already recognise the need to prepare their students for work by staying up-to-date with the pace of change in industry which can sometimes be challenging without the direct support of local companies.
To address this and to help students prepare for the world of work whilst supporting employers to create a suitably skilled next generation workforce, NEP is bringing education and business together by facilitating links between the two through a simple and effective ‘matching’ process.
There are also many opportunities for Northamptonshire companies to lend their support and engage with young people at various careers fairs and workshops across the county.
A full list of events is featured on NEP’s Love Bright Futures website www.lovebrightfutures.com
To get involved as an Inspirer or to support a local careers event, contact Kerry Senatore, Education Business Co-ordinator, NEP on 01604 609535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
