Enterprising students to discover new route to employment through new government back scheme
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skill has announced that it’s supporting a new initiative to boost enterprise and new business start-up called the Startup Career Milkrounds. The initiative aims to see up to 4,000 entrepreneurial university students and graduates in England being connected with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Startup Career Milkrounds is part of the Government’s enterprise education package and will see the National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) and Enternships.com working with university enterprise societies, to achieve that objective.
They will create a national brand for an annual Milkround fortnight that will give students and graduates the chance to engage with small firms through careers fairs that will assist them in securing summer placements, raising entrepreneurial skills levels and creating graduate jobs. The NACUE & Enternships.com Startup Career Milkrounds connect startup companies with University Enterprise Societies.
