From 1 April 2024, the responsibility for LEP functions across the Enterprise M3 LEP region has transferred to Hampshire County Council and Surrey County Council.

The Enterprise M3 Board met for the last time in March 2024 and Enterprise M3 LEP is no longer operating as an organisation.

For any enquiries relating to economic development across the counties of Hampshire and Surrey, please visit the Hampshire County Council website and Business Surrey respectively.

Please note that Enterprise M3 LEP staff have transferred to Hampshire County Council to continue to deliver services and activities in Hampshire, including the Growth Hub, the Careers Hub, work on key business sectors, and trade and investment.

About us

Enterprise M3 LEP Careers Hub supports schools and colleges across Hampshire to improve their careers programmes and create opportunities for young people. We connect careers leads and teachers with businesses and other employers within our region, helping to bridge the gap between education and the local labour market.

We also provide opportunities for employers and business volunteers to work with schools and colleges to share their perspective and sector insights with careers leads and students.

The Gatsby benchmarks are integrated into our offering, helping schools and colleges to meet their statutory requirements and provide a high standard of careers education and provision. We also work closely with other Careers Hubs in our region, including Berkshire LEP Careers Hub, Solent LEP Careers Hub and One Surrey.

Who funds us?

We are funded by the Department of Education (DoE). The DoE commissioned the Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) to deliver support to careers leaders nationally. The EM3 Careers Hub works within the Gatsby Benchmarks and CEC frameworks, regularly liaising with the CEC Regional Lead.

The CEC also provides funding for projects such as Teacher Encounters (partnering with employers to deliver experiences of the workplace to teachers to inform the curriculum) and Talking Futures (empowering teachers to upskill parents on careers options).

The Enterprise M3 Careers Hub is also supported by the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership, Hampshire County Council.
