Our work with schools

The Skills for Employment Programme is a dedicated fund which underpins our careers activities,creating multiple opportunity throughout the year to support schools and businesses with their career’s agenda.

Since the launch of the skills for Employment Programme in 2015, over the years there has been a varied approach to its allocation of support. Through the counties high level of education and industry engagement, the programme has carefully been shaped to meet local needs whilst supporting schools to raise aspirations and increase the engagement and awareness of careers opportunities.

A mixture of grant allocations, match funding and project work has meant that year on year the programme has had the capabilities of ensuring its investment is high impacting with measurable and sustainable outcomes.
