Now in its 7th year, this rewarding EEE programme has been delivered in 18 schools across the County, engaging over 90 volunteer mentors  who have motivated and inspired around 450 young people.

Year 9 and year 12 students have participated in schools over 8 structured sessions, to  improve their career prospects, and prepare for the transition from educations to the workplace.

Each student concluded the programme with a realistic mock interview, and set themselves short term and long term goals for the future.
