O2i Case Study
The Enterprise Adviser network exists to support employer engagement in schools. O2i matched Didcot Girls' School to local businessman Mike Foster in the beginning of 2016. Here is their first co-ran event - just one example of the wonderful interactions between schools and businesses that the Enterprise Adviser network, supported by the Careers and Enterprise Company, can help to create : genuine interactions between young people and local employers which inform and inspire.
As well as the very direct outcome exampled below, the business breakfast also forged links more generally between the school and local businesses, and they are busy planning new events, involving those employers. More on this as it evolves!
