Supporting young people on their journey through education and into jobs has a positive impact on our economy, our competitiveness as a nation and on wider social issues such as poverty and inclusion. Employers have a stake in the future workforce and so are keen to invest by building stronger links with education to ensure the pipeline of skills and talent meets the future needs of industry.

Business in the Community’s role is to broker those linkages and use employer support to help children develop vital skills around literacy and numeracy and raise their aspirations by inspiring them about the world of work.
