JW Stratton are proud to announce that we are supporting South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) – and have become an ‘Industry Champion’.
Supporting the work of Enterprise Advisers, we will be working directly with young people in the County on a range of activities.
South East Local Enterprise Partnership are building a growing network of Industry Champions that represent an array of job roles and career paths from all industries, and in particular the county’s priority sectors. Industry Champions are individuals working at any level be it as CEOs, sole traders, freelancers, or apprentices, who have an interest in sharing their experience of work and promoting their industry.
An Industry Champion will:
- Be directly involved with delivering activities for young people in schools
- Have an ability to present their role, experience and knowledge with a positive energy and strong understanding of their industry
- Commit some time to careers and enterprise activities in schools such as giving talks / presentations at school/college events, mentoring young people, attending careers fairs, giving premises tours, offering work experience opportunities
- Work across the County with different schools
The Industry Champion role is a rewarding experience for staff at any level and offers an opportunity for staff to develop their skills. The Industry Champions Network is currently growing, with opportunities to provide training, support and sharing of best practice.
