The Talent Foundry is an education charity dedicated to opening the doors of opportunity to young people across the country. We do this by working with some of the most challenged schools in the country, offering their pupils opportunities and experiences that help them to develop employability skills and build their confidence.
Since 2009, we have delivered a range of programmes designed to help young people to fulfil their potential. Our mission is to ensure that enriching activities, which many children are fortunate enough to enjoy, thanks to their background and the schools they attend, are within the reach of all young people in the UK.
We aim to help pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds develop new skills, grow in confidence, learn to work as a team, and discover hidden talents and interests. The programmes help equip them with core skills, such as numeracy, communication and technological fluency, which are valued in the workplace and will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Funded entirely through the support of the private sector, The Talent Foundry works with schools across the country to make a difference to the lives – and futures – of young people who need that extra help.
