Careers & Enterprise Company & JPMorgan Chase: £2m Project for Careers Education for Disadvantaged Learners
Excerpt – 1st Nov 2021: “Today sees the launch of a £2 million programme to help connect disadvantaged young people in England with the education and skills they need to prepare them for their future careers.
