We provide disadvantaged young people with the guidance, networks and opportunities they need to realise their potential at school and achieve post-16 qualifications that build towards secure and fulfilling employment.

Why We Exist

 

Too many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds do not fulfill their potential. 

They are not less able and they are not less aspirational.  But they lack access to the support and opportunities of their more privileged peers. 

 

As a result, too many young people from low-income families fail to achieve basic qualifications at GCSE and fail to progress to a study or employment route beyond school with strong income and opportunity progression. 

What We Do

We deliver a programme of face to face career coaching to help young people discover and explore inspiring careers. We combine this with opportunities for pupils to connect with professional role models in the industries that interest them. 

Our programme has been proven to increase students' engagement with their education and their likelihood of progressing to a sustained destination in education, employment or training. 

Since I’ve had a career coach, I’d be willing to do anything that I need to for my future

Future Frontiers - Annual Impact Report 2020-21_Page_01.png
  • In 2020/21, we matched 1,297 young people with a career coach, in partnership with 49 schools and 83 businesses.

  • 89% of young people demonstrated an increase in career readiness and 97% agreed, "my career coach helped me to discover a career that inspires and motivates me". 

  • We outline the findings of external evaluations, which demonstrate the impact of our programme on pupils' ability to make post-16 transitions, and increasing pupils' engagement at school. 

Where you start in life should never determine where you end up. But in the UK today, the income of the family a child born into is still the strongest indicator of how well they will do at school and the opportunities they will have. 

 

We exist to change this.
