Employer Standards

10 January, 2024

Many businesses are struggling to recruit people with the right skills.

Working with schools, special schools and colleges is a proven way of developing young people’s skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

Those businesses that do, say working with the education sector is helping them develop talent pipelines, close skills gaps, increase diversity and attract job and apprenticeship applicants. It also helps companies deliver social value in their communities.

Help shape your workforce of tomorrow

The new Employer Standards is a framework and tool developed by The Careers & Enterprise Company to help focus your business’ outreach with education institutions and create the impact you are looking for.

It will help you to:

  • review the quality of your outreach as well support your business to align its engagement with its business objectives.
  • confidentially assess your performance against peers, nationally, sectorally, and regionally.
  • access an evidence pack underpinning each Standard to support your business case, including inspirational case studies from other businesses and curated resources to help improve the quality of your careers education outreach.

Your business can be part of the solution, make a difference and help shape the skills of your future workforce.
