The Careers & Enterprise Company & Sheffield City Region Enterprise Adviser Network
The Sheffield City Region Enterprise Adviser Network (SCR EAN), which is supported by the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) connects schools and colleges with employers and careers programme providers, supporting them to work together to provide young people with effective and high-quality encounters with the world of work. This helps them to be better informed of the opportunities in the local labour market, to make informed choices about their future and helps them to achieve their potential. You can find the CEC website here and the EAN website here.
The Enterprise Adviser Network have compiled a list of online resources, videos and virtual support around careers. This can be shared with students whilst they are at home and/or unable to benefit from more traditional employer encounters and experiences. You can find that list here.
The Careers & Enterprise Company have produced resources that provide further information about the Gatsby Benchmarks. The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provision in secondary schools. You can find these resources here.
The Careers & Enterprise Company have produced ‘Gatsby Benchmark Toolkits’ to help providers meet the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks. You can see them below:
Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit for Schools
Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit for Colleges
Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
The Careers & Enterprise Company have produced a ‘Making it meaningful’ checklist, which helps Career Leaders ensure each encounter or experience is meaningful for all participants and will ensure quality and consistency to the activity. You can find this here.
The Careers & Enterprise Company run online courses on Careers Leader training. This course is ‘An Introduction to Careers Leader’. You can find this course here.
Finally, The Careers & Enterprise Company have now produced a resource directory and the “Careers in Context – can-do guide”, which has been developed in collaboration with the Gatsby Foundation.
The aim of the “Careers in Context – can-do guide” is to give Careers Leaders confidence and ownership about what they can build into their strategic plans this academic year. They also hope you and your networks of Enterprise Advisers, employers and other organisations will find the information provided useful when considering how to adapt the design of careers programmes in a way that meets the needs of young people during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
