§ Brian Cotter
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what role enterprise advisers will play in secondary education. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
[holding answer 12 May 2003]: Enterprise Advisers will work in secondary schools in disadvantaged areas, providing advice to headteachers on the delivery of the enterprise initiative, improving school interaction with business and offering help and advice on way in which the schools themselves behave as businesses. We also see them as having a role in helping pupil motivation and attendance and contributing towards our reform of the school workforce. In some cases, the advisers will work full time in large schools, in others, they will provide advice on a part time basis.
