The Employer Standards is a framework and free self-assessment tool to help businesses raise the quality of careers education outreach.  It has been developed over the past two years by the Careers & Enterprise Company and was launched in late 2023.

Employers and sole traders can access the framework & tool and:    

  • Review the quality of their outreach and receive real time results and recommendations  
  • Benchmark against peers by size, sector, and region  
  • Track progress over time, with historic submissions saved in our secure portal  
  • Learn from best practice  
  • Access resources to support improvement 

For those that are volunteer with Enterprise Advisers through West London Careers Hub, you can help promote the Employer Standards to local businesses by: 

  1. Using the framework and self-assessment tool in your own organisation. 
  2. Talking to the school/ college Careers Leader you support about how you can promote the Standards to every business their institution works with.  
  3. Offer to present and share experiences of completing the Employer Standards with other local Enterprise Advisers.
