Schools - Form the Future CIC

CAREER INSPIRATION FOR YOUR STUDENTS

impactful careers education

Our mission is to connect young people to a world of career possibilities, inspire them to dream big, and empower them to fulfil their potential.
We support schools to deliver impactful careers education, while helping them achieve their Gatsby Benchmarks. By bringing volunteer professionals from industry into schools – both physically and virtually – we give young people the opportunity to learn from and with employers, sparking their potential and helping them become active agents in their own futures.

WHAT WE OFFER SCHOOLS

PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE FOR LIFE AFTER SCHOOL

PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE FOR LIFE AFTER SCHOOL

We want to equip young people with the experience and skills they will need to succeed in their career of choice, and enable businesses to recruit skilled workers locally. We bridge the gap between these two worlds and help them work together and achieve more.

In a fast-growing region like Cambridge, where employers can’t hire fast enough, it’s essential young people know where the jobs will be and which skills will be in demand. We help schools to prepare their students for life after education, and support businesses with educational outreach to safeguard and build their talent pipeline.

DEVELOPING YOUR CAREERS PROVISION

We meet with careers leads from schools to discuss their careers provision, the problems they may face, and their aims for their students.

BUILD YOUR PROGRAMME

We work together to build an integrated, age-appropriate programme, grounded in career management theory and reflecting the local employment landscape.

INSPIRATION FROM INDUSTRY

Through our business and corporate partnerships, we link schools to professional volunteers who help us to deliver these interventions, exposing students to a variety of career pathways.

SUPPORT AND EVALUATION

We take the stress out of career provision for schools - organising every aspect of our work together - and evaluating each intervention to constantly improve the service we provide.
