The Careers & Enterprise Company has been set up with £20 million of initial government funding to address these gaps. They will be working as an umbrella organisation, supporting programmes that work, filling gaps in provision and ensuring coverage across the country.
The approach is to be evidence-based, build on ‘what works’, and take a pragmatic view of regional variations in the careers, enterprise and employment landscape, adapting our approach as required.
They are a community interest company and independent of government.
The Careers & Enterprise Company was incorporated in February 2015.
