How E4E benefits your child

E4E aims to help your child find happiness and success in life and in the career. Like you, we want them to be the best that they can be. Derby has lots of great employers with superb employment opportunities. We want all our local young people to benefit from this.

We know that options for careers, enterprise and employability can sometimes appear too complex and difficult to navigate. At E4E we want to help young people and their parents gain a better understanding of the fast changing world of work and support young peoples’ journey into it.

A wide range of activities are available through the volunteer team at E4E, some of which are directly aimed at parents, such as our Parent Engagement scheme.
