Education & Employment

Wider Impact Consultancy fully understands the challenges faced by young people and wider community members face when looking to enter and remain in the Labour Market.

We have developed an extensive and innovative menu of services, which we have developed at the ‘front line’ within schools, colleges, universities and Chambers of Commerce.

Our approach has ensured that we deliver what is needed to the most in need of support, guidance and most significantly, confidence building.

Portfolio includes:

  • Commissioned by North Staffordshire based Sandon Business & Enterprise College to deliver a series of innovative events in partnership with local businesses, aimed at building the confidence and aspirations of young people most at risk of under achieving in key examinations
  • Commissioned to develop and deliver the ‘Young Chamber’ project within a College setting
  • Commissioned to deliver a series of Summer Enterprise Days involving local students and visiting students from the Vadym Hetman Kyiv National Economic University, Ukraine
  • Commissioned to deliver Confidence Workshops to disadvantaged groups of adults aiming to enter and re-enter the Labour Market
  • Commissioned by North Staffordshire based Business Initiative to deliver the innovative City Test Trading Programme, aimed at unemployed people who are in receipt of benefits, enables applicants to ‘sign off’ and launch their own business

Testimonials include:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet young entrepreneurs, which will play a significant role in building their confidence and abilities to make the most out of their time at the College and future challenges and opportunities. We are extremely grateful to Wider Impact for arranging and delivering the days and would have no hesitation in recommending others to take advantage of what Wider impact has to offer.”
Irene Unwin, Sandon Business and Enterprise College Director of Specialism for Business and Enterprise

“The whole day was simply outstanding! I have never seen such a dissolute group of boys come together as well as they did….. the boys’ attitude to learning seemed to improve no end. It was clear Wider Impact, in partnership with Stoke City Football Club have carried out a great deal of preparation for this day, which certainly paid off.”
David Walsh, Tutor, Sandon Business & Enterprise College

“This is an exciting and innovative example of how local business can support our local schools and colleges. The days have been all the more special as young entrepreneurs representing all of our companies have been passing on their own experiences of their education and progress through dynamic and successful businesses and organisations.”
David Lownds, Hanley Economic Building Society

“Edwin has been a great Business Mentor to me and given me so much confidence and inspiration. I cannot thank him enough.”
Mandy Elkin, recipient, City Test Trading Programme

“Edwin is helpful and knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to ensure successful outcomes. Whenever I have needed assistance and support he has always helped out and I am extremely grateful for all the help and support he has given me over the years. “
Adele Cope, North Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce
