Greater Manchester Combined Authority

The priorities for GMCA include improving careers education, information, advice and guidance to support informed decision-making and strengthening employer engagement. Working with the GMCA has resulted in support from our Enterprise Coordinator Ms Raper and our Enterprise Adviser Mr Nunn. We are working closely to enhance provision to support the eight Gatsby Benchmarks for good careers guidance
