Cornerstone Employers


Cornerstone Employers work strategically with the Hub Lead, Lead School and other local employers, building individual and collective commitments into a plan that determines activity in response to school and college needs.

Regular roundtables and 1:1 meetings keep progress on track, to ensure that all schools and colleges in the Hub are moving towards achieving all eight Gatsby Benchmarks.

A Cornerstone Employer can be a large or small business, and a local or national employer, provided they are:

  • Dedicated to investing time and resources
  • Committed to work with other Cornerstone Employers
  • Willing to galvanise their business networks
  • Focused on sustainability and acts as an ambassador

In the latter part of 2019 we welcomed 2 new Cornerstone Employers - Sandwell MBC and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.  We are looking forward to working with them.
