Enterprise Advisors take careers education to new heights Cath Dutton, Cumbria Careers Hub Manager

Three new Enterprise Advisors have joined the Cumbria Careers Hub, a role which will help local schools and colleges to shape the futures of young people.

Antonette Cullen, HR Manager at Clark Door, Amanda Wharton, Head of Client Development with Talento Group, and Sue Kaveney, owner of Kaveney HR Solutions, have partnered with two local secondary schools Trinity School and Richard Rose Central Academy, and Carlisle College, and are set to use their skills, business experience and networks to help them to develop a strong careers education programme that supports all students.

The Cumbria Careers Hub is a partnership of schools, colleges, employers and careers education professionals. Launched in January 2019, the programme now supports over 40 secondary schools across Cumbria to deliver exceptional careers education.

Working alongside the Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC), the Hub brings together employers with schools and Colleges to support high quality careers education and enable young people to engage with employers and experience the world of work.

Careers Hub Manager, Cath Dutton, said: “I am delighted that Antonette, Amanda and Sue have joined the Hub as Enterprise Advisors, and I am looking forward to seeing great partnerships develop with their respective schools and college, creating an outstanding careers education programme.

“We’d love more business people to join our network and if you’d like to find out more I’d encourage you to get in touch. Your individual business experience matters - you don't need to be a careers expert - you can help support pathways into your industry and shape young people's futures. Become an Enterprise Adviser today and start helping to rewrite the story for young people.”

Antonette Cullen, Enterprise Advisor at Trinity School, said: “It’s a pleasure to have joined the Enterprise Advisor Network and I am looking forward to sharing the knowledge and skills I have acquired through my multi-sector HR experience. This is a great opportunity to support the local community and improve the Careers Programme for young people within Cumbria.”

Sue Kaveney, Enterprise Advisor at Richard Rose Central Academy, said: “I am incredibly passionate about learning and retaining skills here in Cumbria, and the Enterprise Adviser role enables me to support my passion to ensure every person in our County is aware of the opportunities available to them. I am looking forward to working with the school’s Senior Leadership Team shape their career programme.”

Amanda Wharton, Enterprise Advisor at Carlisle College, said: “One of my main drives is helping people to elevate and change their lives for the better, and this is a core reason why I became an Enterprise Advisor, to help make a difference. All children can achieve when given support and guidance, and I am looking forward to putting my knowledge and experience to good use helping the students at Carlisle College shape their futures.”
