Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to attend a school with a well funded careers’ programme, or have a network of support with links to a wide range of industries.
We working hard to make this change.
The power of three
Our priority is to deliver the three things we believe make the biggest difference to young people’s social mobility.
To connect: being the link between young people and opportunities for work and education
To inspire: providing the spark of inspiration that raises young people’s aspirations
To make change: helping young people break through the barriers to social mobility
We urgently need funding for these life-changing elements of our programme for young people:
‘World of Work’ careers workshops
For School Years 7 & 8 designed to open young people’s minds to the range of opportunities available to them.
1:1 career coaching
For Year 8 & 9 students delivered by experienced volunteers from a wide range of professions and backgrounds who inform, empower and inspire young people to develop their aspirations.
To give young people the best possible chance of securing their first paid roles and training, our programme is increasingly focussed on improving access to apprenticeships and helping prepare young people for the application process.
Insight and Access Days
For students in Year 10, 11 & 12 in collaboration with employers in specific areas of industry, these days give young people the opportunity to meet inspiring professionals and learn about pathways into key sectors. We aim to provide the spark of inspiration that changes a young person’s outlook and help them develop transferable skills such as interview technique and team work.
