Staff from 27 schools in the region attended the first Careers Strategy Parterships event at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds – which was hailed as a great success.

The event was designed to develop local solutions for the new national careers strategy, which aims to break down barriers and help everyone build a rewarding career.

The college partnered with the Careers and Enterprise Company and the Enterprise Advisor Network for a series of five different sessions for those attending from education and businesses across the region.

Angela Smith, executive director of Learner Partnerships at West Suffolk College, said: “The event attracted fantastic feedback from the schools who were helped with developing solutions for the national careers strategy.

“It shows we can all work together to deliver meaningful and outstanding employer connections, work experience, advice and guidance.”
