Daniel helps out with the Raedwald Trust

July 25, 2019

 

Daniel English, one of our accountants at Contador Accountancy Services in Martlesham, said he got involved with this voluntary scheme to show kids that “life skills are much more important than whats on a piece of paper.”

 

Daniel supports the Raedwald Trust and more specifically Parkside PRU school on Spring Road in Ipswich. This additional development and provision of opportunity by a select base of local businesses is all co-ordinated by the New Anglia LEP and Daniel is personally supported by Jordan Holder at the Local Enterprise Partnership. The aim of the Enterprise Advisor scheme/ network is to increase the number of encounters that young people have with employers throughout their education.

 

Speaking at the event, Daniel said he was getting as much out of the interaction with the children as they were. “I find it really interesting getting direct feedback from them. It can be quite humbling and also interesting in terms of my self awareness.”

 

The Careers & Enterprise Company is the national network set up to inspire and prepare young people for the fast-changing world of work. Whilst much of the company’s work in Ipswich lies in broadening the career horizons of secondary and further education students, it’s also widely recognised that it's key to inspire children from primary school age onwards.

 

A survey published by OECD Education and Skills in partnership with Tes, the NAHT and UCL Institute of Education in January, of 20,000 primary school children, found their career aspirations have little in common with projected workforce needs, and gender stereotypes in job aspirations still apply from a very young age.
