The aim of Central Berkshire Education Business Partnerships is to help young people:

Raise their awareness of employability skills
Raise their awareness of career opportunities
Raise their awareness of the workplace

We do this by working with employers to offer young people the opportunity to engage in Work Experience, Careers fairs, employer workshops, site visits, Careers Carousels, Business Challenge days and Apprenticeship workshops.

Work Experience direct to you

We are now able to offer work experience directly to parents who want their child to have an experience of the work place before they leave school.

Placements are provided in consultation with parents and their children to ensure a good match is found and the placement is a success.

Job Safari Adventure

We are pleased to announce that we are able to offer our Job Safari Adventure at a discounted price to the first 10 schools that book an activity before Friday 27th May.

Job Safari Adventures allows pupils in Year 5 or 6 to engage directly with up to 6 employers and learn more about careers and skills.

Young people can only aspire to what they know exists!

Volunteering opportunities

We have a number of volunteering opportunities available for business to support.

The role of our Business Ambassadors is to help young people understand more about the work place, career options and employability skills by drawing on their own experiences and relating the learning experience of the young people to the real world.

Business Ambassadors are supported throughout the whole activity.

Visit our volunteer page for our latest opportunities.


For the past 5 years our Transitions programme has been funded by the Big Lottery and that funding is coming to an end in May.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has been involved and worked with us to help young people who are vulnerable, need extra support or have a Special Education Need to learn more about the workplace, career opportunities and employability skills.

Transitions will be back in September so please check our website for further updates.
