Business & Industry Meets Education
his is where the story began actually. The concept was developed as a result of the chasmic skills gap. Most businesses are concerned that they will not have sufficiently skilled staff available to fulfil their future needs.
Aligning Career Aspirations with Industry Requirements
So the team set about working with business and industry representatives, business engagement consultants and qualified, highly experienced teachers to develop a programme which aims (and, most importantly, succeeds) to align career aspirations with industry requirements – for sound economic growth.
Regardless of sector and industry, all employers, large or small, can easily (and should) get involved.

Whether it is your time or CSR funding, you can invest in this unique structured programme which inspires, explores, prepares and supports our young peoples’ future experiences and facilitates the real connection between education and businesses just like yours, continuously creating synergies.
Because it makes great business sense. And that’s brilliant.
There are two ways in which you can support schools:
- Volunteer to attend a local career carousel event, inspiring young people about your company, industry and role. These are well structured, require little preparation and normally last approximately 2 hours.
Who is this for? – businesses or employees who want to encourage young people to consider a career in your industry (you’ll enjoy it – we promise!)
- Become a School Partner – The role of a School Partner can range from simply supporting a number of schools with funding to access the programme through to include active engagement with schools, career carousel attendance and celebration. This role enables the schools (who have limited budgets) to access the programme for their students. Funding is allocated for the first year with the school then maintaining access for subsequent years.
Who is this for? – Organisations who wish to use their CSR or marketing to make a real difference in their community, young people and future workforce. Or simply those who are driven to engage with different phases of education and young people to increase awareness.
It’s really easy and most of the work is already done for you so if you are even slightly intrigued, get in touch, we would love to talk to you in more detail.
