We are a dynamic charity working to change the national conversation on young people and skills. We are a partnership between government, business and education to accelerate young people's careers and help more of the next generation get the best start in work and life. We are part of a global movement working with young people right across the world. In the UK, we are entering an exciting new phase in our development and have ambitious plans for the future - seeking to actively engage 1m young people in our work by 2022.
How we meet our goals:
- We create inspirational role models and run careers advice activities - including the UK's largest careers event.
- We run competitions to find the UK's best skilled young people and we enter them as Team UK into international competitions -a sort of 'skills Olympics’ - competing for medals against 75 other countries
- We develop new products and services to help young people better prepare for work and life,
