Cornerstone Employers

Cornerstone Employers give strategic support to a cluster of schools and colleges to empower careers provision. They work together with their networks, the wider business community and the local Enterprise Coordinator or Hub Lead, to ensure all young people in their area have the opportunities they need to be prepared and inspired for the world of work.
