Ed2Biz Education Business Consultancy provides the link between schools and businesses.
Through a variety of events and challenges, Ed2Biz provides an essential brokerage service which enables students to gain knowledge and experience of the world of work; helping them to discover more about the opportunities available to them and the skills they need to be successful. In addition, the organisations and volunteers are able to work with students within age appropriate activities and within guidelines which provide the best outcomes for both students and businesses.
Ed2Biz was founded by Jane Sheridan in 2015. Jane worked for First Partnership Education Business Partnership (EBP) part of a wide and varied EBP network up and down the country. Originally the work was funded directly by the government but when this funding ceased and many of the EBPs weren’t able to survive, including First Partnership.
However, having worked in an EBP for 7 years and having first-hand experience of the impact that careers education in the form of events and challenges had on young people, Jane wanted to continue to use her contacts and expertise.
All the programmes are designed to inspire, motivate and raise the aspirations of young people in North Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
