Linking Businesses with Schools

Are you an employer looking to inspire future generations to work in your field?

Research has found that if young people have come into contact with at least 4 employers during their education, they are 86% less likely to end up NEET (Not Engaged in Education, Employment or Training).

The GM Bridge provides a valuable resource for businesses wanting to engage with schools.

Trafford Council have identified that there are skills gaps in key sectors including Digital skills and Construction.

If you are a business and would like to engage with local schools, please complete the Employer Template form, stating what you are looking for and what you can offer, which could be any of the following: class talks, site visits, support for school career fairs, mentoring, work experience or work shadowing.
