Event description

Description

The North East Ambition programme was launched by the North East LEP in 2017 to build on the success of the Gatsby Good Career Guidance benchmarks pilot, and support North East schools and colleges to deliver high quality careers education.

The North East Ambition Careers Hub was established with funding from the Careers and Enterprise Company in 2018 to co-ordinate careers education, information, advice, and guidance for schools and colleges in the North East. The North East LEP secured additional funding in May 2019 to expand the Careers Hub, and introduce a new Hub focused on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

The North East England Chamber of Commerce supports this work as part of our campaign to build a Working North East. We have many examples of members working together to support careers advice and would like to grow this activity across the entire region.

This Linking Business with Education event will bring together leaders from education and business to network and share best practice.

The agenda will include an update from the Chamber on our campaign to link business and education, an update from the North East LEP on North East Ambition, presentations from members on best practice for school-business engagement, and opportunities for networking.

Who should attend?

School and College Careers Leads should attend to build contacts with local businesses

HR & Training Managers, business owners, and anyone interested in education and skills should attend to find out about the latest developments in careers advice, and the most effective ways for employers to engage with schools

This event has been arranged in partnership with the North East LEP, and is open to Chamber members and non-members. When registering, please select whether you are representing a school or a business.
