Partnerships with employers

A Levels with progression

The North East Local Enterprise Partnership is targeting 100,000 additional jobs in the region between 2014 and 2024, with 70% of these being higher value roles. A Levels with progression to University or higher or degree level apprenticeships are a key route into these job opportunities. We work with a wide range of employers in a variety of ways. This includes promoting graduate opportunities, offering students mock interviews, workplace visits, and careers talks to specific cohorts.

Oliver Wyman
