Future Frontiers exists to ensure young people from disadvantaged backgrounds fulfill their potential at school and when transitioning to education, employment or training at age 16 and 18.
We do this through an intensive programme of face-to-face coaching delivered by business professionals, and giving students access to professional role models in their preferred industries.
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.
What Future Frontiers Can Offer You
In 2018/19, we delivered our programme to 1600 students across London, Bristol and Edinburgh.
An independent evaluation by the University of Derby showed that Future Frontiers pupils were significantly more likely to transition to positive destinations aged 16.
92% pupils agreed the programme had improved their attitudes towards learning.
