Careers, employability skills and vocational learning │ Impact

Good careers education is critical to widen horizons and help young people to make informed choices about their future training and employment. Most businesses require employees to have critical skills like leadership, communications, teamwork, and problem solving. We also believe both academic and vocational pathways should be a valid choice to enable young people to find, explore and develop their talents and prepare for their future chosen careers.

Grant programme examples: Social action, work experience, university visits, STEM clubs, public speaking competitions, enterprise challenges, adventure residentials, alumni programme, curriculum based skills learning etc.
