We help young people fulfil their potential

Working Options in Education is an employability and life skills charity that has been helping young people to aim high and fulfil their potential since 2010.

The Working Options Career Pathways Programme is delivered free in state schools, colleges and online by industry volunteers and helps students (aged 14-19) to identify and pursue career options. Through practical help and advice, they build their skills and become confident to face their future with choices and progress from ‘Learner to Earner’.

Our programme is designed to benefit all young people, but we prioritise those from the most under-served areas of the country.
