Bridge GM: Enabling students in secondary education to gain quality interactions with employers

Bridge GM aims to provide advice, support and guidance to schools and colleges to make employer engagement much easier and more effective. The service enables businesses to get involved in supporting young people from age 11 to 18 across Greater Manchester. They offer strategic support to schools and colleges, support industry links within the curriculum and provide inspirational activities.

Bridge GM holds a number of events throughout the year enabling students to hear about career opportunities. This includes the Meet Your Future work shadowing programme which offers young people the opportunity to spend a day in a business environment.
