F4S connects young people, no matter their background, with inspirational role models to
prepare them for the rapidly changing world of work thereby reducing the skill gap.
Young people, particularly those from disadvantaged groups, are not getting
access to the guidance needed to transition into successful careers. Research has
shown that if students have four or more interactions with future employers
before leaving school then they would be 86% less likely to become a NEET (Not
in Education, Employment or Training).
What We Do
F4S is a vital tool in creating these links. We have built a unique digital platform
offering educators a quick and easy way to book research-backed encounters with
a range of volunteers from leading businesses to inspire their students. Having
adapted our services to ensure that students and educators could access webinars
while schools were shut, we have now created a blended learning model to
ensure flexibility and accessibility to students without barriers.
