Become a Business Champion

Business Champions are a vital element of the Cutlers’ Better Learners, Better Workers scheme; supporting and mentoring their groups of ambassadors.

Each school receives support from a Business Champion who holds a senior position in their organisation. They develop a strong relationship with the school and help ensure that the employer requirements of the sector are fully understood by senior staff, teachers and students.

The Business Champions support schools by:

  • Mentoring/coaching and supporting the Ambassadors
  • Enabling young people to develop the essential skills and attributes required to thrive and succeed in the world of work
  • Facilitating project-based and workplace learning opportunities from the sector
  • Raising awareness of the sector with both students and staff

There are many benefits of becoming a Business Champion, both on a personal and professional level including:

  • Mentoring the employees of the future
  • Supporting in bridging the skills gap
  • Community engagement
  • Opportunities to join up and network at Enterprise Adviser Network meetings
