Business and Community Links

Our role is to equip students with the skills and knowledge that they need to make informed decisions at key points in their school lives, and ultimately to prepare them for the world of work.

We want to encourage all students to set their sights high and broaden their ambitions through our Careers Programme which will enrich this process through a diverse range of events, speakers, mentoring and visits to universities and businesses.

We want to inspire students to raise their aspirations, broaden their horizons and strive for excellence from the moment they come to The Latimer Arts College.

Enterprise Adviser Network

The Latimer Arts College is part of The Enterprise Adviser Network.  Set up by the Careers and Enterprise Company and co-ordinated locally with South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) the purpose of the Enterprise Adviser Network is to create powerful, lasting connections between local businesses and the schools and colleges in their area.

Enterprise Advisers (EAs) are volunteers drawn from businesses who will work directly with the school’s leadership team to develop effective employer engagement plans. They will work with the school and other local businesses to help equip young people with the skills they need for the future and help schools navigate a particularly fragmented environment.

The Careers and Enterprise Company is an employer-led organisation set up to inspire and prepare young people for the fast-changing world of work.

 The Company’s role is to join the dots between schools, colleges, employers and providers of careers and enterprise activities, supporting programmes that work, filling gaps in provision and ensuring coverage across the country. It follows four principles to do this:

1. Test, learn and adapt

2. Build on what works

3. Work nationally, tailor locally

4. Enable and convene the best programmes
