We work with schools in London and Greater London with a high number of students on Free School Meals, low employer engagement and high ethnic diversity
To promote social mobility
When young people and their parents know what jobs are out there and where the vacancies are they’re more likely to make choices that challenge their assumptions about the right job for "people like me" (Gatsby Foundation).
Our mentors support young people to learn more about the jobs available in the creative industries, and the routes in.
To build social capital
Young people who make 4+ professional connections before leaving school, are 5x more employable and earn up to 18% more (Educational Endowment Foundation).
Our mentors help young people to make at least 4 new professional connections.
To develop soft skills
Research shows value what people can do more than exam results. As the world of work changes, employers seek individuals who can communicate well, adapt and solve problems creatively (NESTA).
We train our mentors to support young people to develop soft skills like confidence, resilience and initiative.
