2019 has been another great year for the EDGE Jobs & Skills Brokerage which via local partnership has yet again demonstrated its drive to deliver Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) to local job seekers, support local businesses with their recruitment needs and raise career aspirations amongst local school and college students. 

EDGE has now delivered IAG to over 774 local job seekers, many of whom have gone onto employment, volunteering or training & education as a result of our interventions. Furthermore, in terms of local schools and educational establishments, EDGE has been able to widen its programmes beyond Alconbury to incorporate both Wintringham and Waterbeach this year supporting and delivering meaningful engagements to over 700 students across seven secondary schools as well as driving the regional apprenticeship agenda by hosting Cambridge County Council’s annual apprenticeship celebration at Alconbury Weald in March. 

With the return of the EDGE Annual Careers Fair at Alconbury Weald in December, for students from seven local schools, hosting over 500 students for the day, EDGE is at the heart of helping all ages broaden their employment horizons.
