North East based contractors Metnor Construction will be joining forces with Newcastle 6th Form College as part of their involvement in the Enterprise Adviser Network, a national initiative that is managed at a national level by the Careers and Enterprise Company and at a regional level by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
Improving skills is at the heart of North East Strategic Economic Plan. The North East LEP are committed to encourage every school and college in the region to adopt the Good Careers Guidance Benchmarks, a framework of internationally researched good careers practice. The framework of eight benchmarks allow schools and colleges to assess their careers provision with a focus on ‘meaningful’ interactions with business and improving young peoples’ experiences of the world of work. The collaboration between business and education helps teachers shape and deliver careers provision within their school or college.
