A new national pilot programme will bring together 1,000 teachers and 200 businesses across England to boost collaboration and improve young people’s career opportunities.

The Careers & Enterprise Company’s (CEC) Teacher Encounters programme will engage a range of businesses from SME’s to major multinationals and involve companies like Rolls Royce, Cap Gemini, BAE Systems, construction giant Balfour Beatty, international film studio Pinewood and is supported by the CBI.

The new initiative comes as studies show teachers are a key source of career inspiration for students. However, they want more information about the range of future options - in particular vocational and apprenticeship pathways.
