We are an employability education charity on a mission to help young people succeed in work by broadening their career awareness, stimulating their aspirations and requiring their communication skills.
With roots in Milton Keynes since 1992, and education values based on inclusion and impartiality, we have organised 50,000 work placements and facilitated 20,000 meetings with diverse work guests in schools. We have also run our own work-based ‘school without walls’ for excluded 14-16 year olds.
Today we are focused on a vision of introducing every young person to 50 guests from the world of work and developing facilitators to do the same nationally and internationally (recently in Uganda, China and India).
We receive funding mainly from schools and businesses, and spend it all on meeting the needs of our beneficiaries: young people and employers.
