FENLANDER: Fenland Enterprise in Education project launches website
A NEW website has been launched to help boost young people’s job prospects by fostering closer links between businesses and schools.
The website www.fee-project.co.uk has been created by the Fenland Enterprise in Education (FEE) project.
The scheme seeks to build “clusters” of businesses in the area round each secondary school in the district and to help them work with the schools to provide a range of activities for students, such as interview workshops, tours of companies or talks from business leaders.
The aim is to give students a comprehensive insight into the world of work and help them make important decisions about their future careers.
Katie Hart, FEE’s project manager, will oversee all the arrangements between schools and businesses, providing a hassle-free and coordinated service to all the participating organisations.

The new website enables local businesses to sign up to the project at a click of a button. Ms Hart is also happy to have an informal chat with any business to work out how they can get involved in ways that best suit their particular circumstances.
The FEE project arose from feedback at last year’s Skills Summit, which highlighted the need for more opportunities for schools and businesses to work together to build a skilled future workforce.
