A Weston school is looking for business experts to provide students with career advice.

Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College is working with the West of England Enterprise Adviser Network to find entrepreneurs and professionals keen to help students to learn more about the world of work.

Enterprise advisers receive support and training to work with school leadership teams to help them improve their careers teaching.

This includes emerging trends in the area, building better networks for work experience and establishing a focus on careers.

There are now 35 enterprise advisers linked with 33 schools across the area and the network is looking for more people to support pupils. Experts in logistics, health or the low-carb sector are particularly welcome.

Business keen to take part, can email enterprise@westofengland-ca.gov.uk
