Matching school leaver candidates with local trainee positions with real CAREER prospects in business.

The Business Academy brings together future business talent and local employers to offer real career opportunities for school leavers. Employers will get the chance to showcase career opportunities available in their business.

Succession planning has never been more of a challenge. Across the UK, employers experienced a drop in applications from school leavers for trainee positions post pandemic – which meant many entry level jobs remain unfilled.

Help spread the message to school leavers and parents that a trainee role in business is a step on to a very exciting career ladder.

Let us help you find your next trainee recruit!

Register your school leaver trainee vacancy now and we will promote this opportunity at school careers fairs, our social media channels and directly to the school careers leads who are partnering with us for this funded program.

The Business Academy works with your business to facilitate a match with a school leaver candidate to a job in your organisation with clear a career progression route.
