,The Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has developed the Enterprise Adviser Network for the City Region, which is part funded by the Careers & Enterprise Company, to bridge the gap between education and employers with the use of volunteer advisers who visit schools and colleges. Currently 109 schools are engaged with over 80 Enterprise Advisers, representing a range of sectors across the City Region.
The LEP also runs a Careers Hub that unites schools and colleges, with universities, training providers, employers and career professionals, to improve careers education.
Revolution Four, led by Nik Ellis and Justine McLaughlin, will now work with Pensby High Schools’ senior leadership team to develop a whole school strategy for careers, enterprise and employer engagement.
Welcoming the news, Sally Beevers, Careers Hub Lead for the City Region said: “ Young people are our future, so it is vitally important we inspire and support them to successfully enter the workplace and I’m delighted to welcome Nick and Justine to our team of Enterprise Advisors.
The firm’s senior directors are linked to a number of other enterprises including the UK’s premier automotive expert witness service Laird Assessors, and Merseyside IT software firm Livepoint.
