TR partnering with local college as Enterprise Advisers

Helen Toole, Group HR Director and Luke Murphy, UK HR Manager based at TR’s headquarters in Uckfield, have partnered with the local college and will work with them to provide support as Enterprise Advisers.

Enterprise Advisers are being partnered with local schools and colleges to become part of an influential nationwide structure of outstanding business volunteers, who can present knowledge of their sector and how it fits in to a local and far reaching business community.

Launched in 2015 by Skills East Sussex, the East Sussex Enterprise Adviser Network is funded by the Careers & Enterprise Company and East Sussex County Council, meaning this is a component of an increasing nationwide network. 

In the UK, there are over 1,300 schools and colleges being supported with arrangements in place to grow this figure. Organisers are hopeful as partnerships increase and evolve that this will mean business and school linked activities will improve, resulting in long-term goals being met.

Striving to accomplish East Sussex County Council’s Employability and Skills strategy, businesses from priority growth areas e.g. construction, creative & digital, engineering and lots more, are being matched with secondary, further education and sixth form colleges to rekindle their business and education links.

As Enterprise Advisers, Luke and Helen will help to develop an employment engagement strategy, in which they are able to help Uckfield College to engage their students with local businesses and aim to have a long lasting worthwhile impact to be able to support locally whilst making a difference.

By helping Uckfield College evolve with an Enterprise and Employer Engagement plan, consisting of activities and advice that publicises career paths and employability skills, they will recognise their preferred fields and be able to support other advisers involved in the network, to share ideas and best practice. Once this is completed, it is evaluated by county councils and schools.
 
Luke Murphy Comments: 
 
“It is so great to be able to be part of this network, to know that the work me and Helen will be providing will be able to have a positive impact on young adults, by creating long term careers advice and guidance.”
