Inspiring The Next Generation

What we experience informs where we go and for young people, meeting employers and experiencing different workplaces is a key element in helping students understand the world of work and make informed choices on their future careers.

We collaborate with employers throughout Cumbria and Lancashire, who are vital to help link education and employment.

There are several ways for employers like you to support local education and school leaders. Your skills and knowledge can highlight your sector showing young people the variety of options open to them in the future.
