Online Coaching Programme
We provide businesses with a way to make a real difference to young people in their community, whilst improving employee engagement and wellbeing.
A young person from a low-income family is already twice as likely to be out of education, or work when they leave school.
It is becoming clear that these inequalities will be widened as a result of Covid-19. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are far less likely to access the support and guidance they need to make informed decisions about their next steps.
With a youth jobs crisis imminent, it has never been more important to equip young people with the knowledge and tools they need to be able to navigate the education and employment landscape.
As of April 2020, Future Frontiers is running all coaching and mentoring programmes online. We use a sector leading virtual mentoring platform to facilitate virtual face-to-face meetings.
Businesses are still able to support our work, and engage and energise their staff, by partnering with us to deliver a virtual programme.
How Does The Online Programme Work?
The programme is co-ordinated by a Future Frontiers Programme Manager.
We recruit a group of employees from your organisation as coaches.
We submit DBS check applications for all participating employees and provide access to our online coaching platform.
Participants receive full training (3 hours total) and a workbook of activities to complete with students.
We match each participating coach to a pupil. Coaches meet their pupil online for 4 x 2 hour sessions, delivered across one half term.
Coaches support students to reflect on their strengths and interests, learn about different careers and plan for their next steps.
"Going into this I had no idea of the impact it would have on me. I looked forward to every session and enjoyed every minute of it. It was actually my manager who picked up on the extent of this - in a meeting I had with him just after a session with Muskan he said Stef you are absolutely buzzing!.

The strongest indicator of how well a child will do at school is how much their parents earn.
