Inspiring students by connecting schools and businesses
Mentoring Programme 2016/17
Form the Future connects schools and businesses to help students prepare for their future careers. Students gain insight, skills and experience while businesses can invest in their future workforce.
In the last academic year we connected over 10,000 students with employers to expand their horizons and improve their skills. We can only do this with the support of the business community and commitment from schools and colleges.
What schools say:
“We were thrilled and grateful to have so much support from local businesses. It was an event that enabled pupils to explore potential careers and be exposed to industries they had never considered before. Our pupils benefited from hearing from the local workforce about key employability skills and gained insight into the different types of jobs. Although teachers can and do explain the different pathways and opportunities, it is much more dynamic and illuminating to hear from the employers themselves,”
Deputy Principal, Sawston Village College
What business partners say:
‘You have made such a difference to the links between schools and employers and I wish you good luck with everything in the future,’
