Young people deserve and benefit greatly from access to employers whilst they’re still at school. Research shows that young people who interact with employers during their time at school are far less likely to become NEET (not in education, employment or training).
Our employer programme complements the core work we undertake to build and develop communities of former students. Alumni volunteers boost students’ confidence, motivation and knowledge of career pathways.
We work with a range of employers, for partner staff to talk to young people, including in the workplace itself. This enables students to access the real experience, advice and motivation from a range of available jobs.
Each partnership is unique. Some organisations provide vital funding or pro bono support. Others provide hours of staff volunteering time or work with us to design impactful programmes. All of our partners help us to have a meaningful impact on young people, schools and their alumni up and down the country.
