A totally different way of planning futures
Our Futures programme is designed to deliver unlimited aspiration and endless opportunities for every child and young person.
What is Futures?
We believe that young people should be judged by the person they become and not the box they tick. From this belief, Futures has been born, a unique way to completely support every young person into the future they deserve.
Here, Tracey Fletcher-Ray, CEO and Matthew Boyle, Projects Director, share the options and opportunities that Futures offers, including some of their standout moments from the programme so far.
Share your expertise with us
Our Futures programme sets us apart, and employers think so too. At the drop of a hat, they can share their experience and expertise in sessions at school through our Futures Ambassadors Sessions, offer our young people day trips to enter their world or weeks and weeks of work experience.
If you know an employer and want to get involved, contact our Futures Team by emailing email@example.com
Cementing their future
As part of Futures, Billy, a pupil from our Bridgeway School in Preston, experienced life on a live construction site with Caddick Construction. Once a week over six weeks, he worked closely with the site manager, getting stuck into activities while interacting with professionals and their diverse jobs.
During this experience, Cumberland School and Caddick Construction staff witnessed Billy grow and celebrated many moments they proudly share in this video.
Sketching out a future
Our Futures Ambassadors Sessions bring employers to our schools, where they speak to young people about their journey to success, giving a real insight into experiences and the diverse opportunities that industries can offer.
In this video, Kirsty Doyle, fashion designer and entrepreneur from Liverpool visited our Pontville School, where she facilitated a workshop and shared how her career started in fashion and the experiences she has had along the way.
Blending up a future
The students from Pontville School's 16-19 Centre visited the restaurant of Ellis and Liam Barrie, who provided a behind-the-scenes tour of their fine dining establishment. Their staff team also took the time to speak to our aspiring chefs, giving them an insight into their careers and progress in hospitality.
In this video, watch how the visit brought to life their initial Futures Ambassador session, where the entrepreneurs shared their passion for food and their journey so far.
Working with businesses and entrepreneurs up and down the country, we provide options and opportunities enabling our children and young people to meet inspiring people. Here, you can find all the latest goings on.
