Thank you for agreeing to be a Centre Lead

This section is a key starting point for all Centre Leads as you start to support students on their Company Programme journey

The information on this platform is relevant to new Centre Leads (CLs) seeking to know more about the Programme, key milestones, and their role, as well as experienced CLs who will find this a helpful refresher of key points, a basic reference guide and an introduction to the resources available for them.

A full set of the resources found on this website and much more information will be available on YE Online, so it is strongly advised that you complete the registration process as soon as possible (once registration is open) so that you are able to access these assets.

What you need to know as a Centre Lead

It is your responsibility to complete the registration process on YE Online; only once you have registered your students and the Business Adviser for Company Programme will you be given login details to access the Programme platform and the additional resources.

Further information and guidance

In addition to this website and YE Online, support for YE activity across the UK is provided by YE Managers and Local Volunteer Boards. Local Boards are made up of volunteers from local businesses, educational establishments and public sector.

Local Volunteer Boards often run Induction events at the beginning of the academic year to help orientate new CLs and BAs and to provide important Programme and calendar updates to more experienced CLs and BAs.

You can contact your local YE Manager for assistance, contact details are available on
