Working Options in Education helps young people fulfil their potential by developing employability and life skills. Our Career Pathways Programme, delivered with state schools and colleges, supports young people facing additional challenges caused by the pandemic, prioritising those from disadvantaged regions.
The programme includes self-directed online learning; employability and skills masterclasses; talks from industry volunteers; mentoring; business challenges; and access to work opportunities in partner companies.
Since 2010, we have worked to transform the life chances of young people (14-19), by helping them take early control of their education or career journey, when the choices they make will shape their future.
We particularly focus on engaging disadvantaged young people, to bridge the opportunity gap in employment prospects that continues to widen, by targeting social mobility cold spots to level the playing field.
It is time for business to recruit on potential, not polish.
