“Real life stories are always more powerful than theoretical stuff. It’s always rewarding when students can see the relevance of their work being demonstrated.”
We help young people fulfil their potential
Working Options in Education helps young people (14-19) to aim high and fulfil their potential. Our employability and life skills programme is delivered free in schools, colleges and online through our well-established links with employers – particularly in the food, drink and retail industry.
We offer young people multiple interactions with employers including expert insight from industry, skills workshops, online content, access to industry events, work experience and placements.
The widening opportunity gap in employment prospects means that we particularly focus on engaging disadvantaged young people.
