Annual Report

We are very grateful to our volunteers, teachers, staff and supporters for their contribution to our collective efforts to increase opportunities for young people. Helping them to benefit from greater levels of support and make successful transitions into employment.

We work directly with young people, teachers, parents, businesses and influencers to help build a successful and sustainable future for all young people and society at large.

Since 1962, we have worked with both the business and education sectors to engage over four million young people. We believe passionately in the power of ‘learning by doing’ and the difference that it has made and continues to make to the lives, futures and ambitions of young people.
