Beacon East

Beacon East is an Education Business Partnership Organisation working across the East Region. The company’s mission is to develop 'meaningful relationships between education and business & industry'. This is achieved through a wide range of exciting activities, including student ‘world of work’ experiences, teacher CPD and Careers & IAG services. With every education-business link activity we aim to ‘Engage, Enthuse and Embed’ creating a long term legacy rather than just a one off experience

A menu of FREE Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities open to teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects, information, advice and guidance (IAG) professionals, careers and youth support staff. Teachers are at the heart of career education for young people. Our revised ‘Teach the Teachers’ initiative, takes teachers into the energy industry and offers interactive engagement opportunities with key employers. The OPITO Pipeline of Information Week, in partnership with Beacon East, offers core ‘influencers’ in local schools and colleges the opportunity to learn more about the range of careersand routes into the energy sector.
