Inspiring and equipping students for success

We ensure readiness for leaving education

Delivering the Enterprise Adviser Network in London

On behalf of the Careers & Enterprise Company and Team London, we are delivering the Enterprise Adviser Network across Central, West and South London.

The London Enterprise Adviser Network helps young people build the skills and experiences they need to lead successful futures.

It does this by connecting businesses with schools and colleges to create a network of business volunteers, called Enterprise Advisers, and school or college Careers Leaders. This ensures that young people are aware of all the career pathways and opportunities available to them.
