Investing in tomorrow’s workforce today

Today’s pupils become tomorrow’s workforce, and it is vital to prepare them thoroughly.

Activities delivered by the EBP are tailored to the needs of the school which includes preparing activities specific to the age range and ability of the young people involved.  We work with Primary and Secondary schools, Colleges and Universities.

Below is a list of events, prepared and delivered by our Work Related Learning Consultant:

  • Career Workshops
  • Enterprise Challenges
  • Mock Interviews
  • Preparation for Work Experience Sessions
  • Presentational Skills
  • Raising Aspirations

Career, Enterprise and Work Related Learning

Work Experience 

Our Work Experience package includes:

  • Health, Safety and Safeguarding assessments of employers with results recorded on the database
  • Password protected access to a database detailing companies that have taken work experience pupils previously
  • Talks to pupils during school assemblies or lessons
  • Work Experience logbooks and leaflets for employers, parents and pupils
  • Attendance at EBP network meetings for school co-ordinators

Off Site Learning

We ensure that schools who wish to place pupils in Off Site Learning as an alternative to a school-based curriculum have information at their finger-tips.

We do this by providing a comprehensive directory of approved Off Site Learning Providers which have been checked in terms of health, safety and safeguarding.  The directory contains information on each provider, in terms of their provision, giving pupils who wish to follow an alternative curriculum out of school.


Are you a company or an individual willing to share your knowledge of work with young people?

The EBP deliver Work Related Learning activities to young people in Sandwell and surrounding areas.  We seek volunteers from the world of work to share their experiences of education, training and employment with young people.

  • Speaking to small groups of pupils about education, training and employment.
  • Supporting schools with enterprise challenges where pupils are given real life business problems to solve
  • Supporting schools with other activities such as mock interviews
  • Shadowing opportunities for teachers so they can apply what they are teaching to the ‘real world’
  • Work experience placements for pupils



White-knuckle Enterprise Challenge: An excellent day had by all. Students and staff at OSCA really embraced the day and were really motivated. Working with EBP took the pressure off the organising of the day and I felt we were in good hands. Staff training was also included so everyone knew before the day what was going to be happening. I would really recommend the business & enterprise days to any other educational establishment. Being PSHE & Careers lead in school this day ticked so many boxes…
