Our Impact

What we do

We help young people to fulfil their potential

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

Our employability and life skills programme is delivered free in schools, colleges and online. We offer young people multiple interactions with our employer partners and volunteers. This includes expert insight sessions, skills workshops, online content, access to industry events, work experience and placements.

We particularly focus on engaging disadvantaged young people, to bridge the opportunity gap in employment prospects that continues to widen.
