Elevate Your Future (EYF)
Elevate Your Future (EYF) projects are designed to inform students about routes into education and employment,
with an emphasis on developing transferable skills in order to raise attainment as well as the young person’s career and educational aspirations. The EYF project targets at young people aged 14-19.
By working in partnership with businesses and organisations from different industries the projects
bridge the gap between school students, higher education and corporate industries.
Some of the programmes we have on offer:
Career Choices and Preparing for higher education:
These workshops are an opportunity for learners to explore their career options, raise their aspirations and prepare them for a more holistic approach to academic attainment with an emphasis on employability through soft skills development and work experience.
These workshops focus on getting learners to start thinking about generating ideas, motivating them to act and equipping them with the tools to go to the next stage in developing a business idea or community project. Learners also have the chance to receive seed funding to further their project ideas.
The Great Debate:
These workshops focus on engaging young people with current affairs and issues and develop Critical thought through debate.
These workshops allow young people to build their confidence, presentation and public speaking skills, through effective communication. Using non-formal education techniques such as poetry and drama.
We are able to create mentoring programmes, where mentees receive one to one support in both professional and personal development.
- “The course did not meet expectations because it was better, I would do it all over again.”
- “I learnt that “My dream may seem impossible but it can happen.”
- “We recently hosted a group of youngsters at HSBC as part of the ‘Elevate Your Future’ programme. I was very impressed with the young people and their
determination to succeed. They were very enthusiastic, responded very well to the speakers and the questions were focussed. It was a rewarding experience and I’m glad that I got the opportunity to meet them. I believe that this is a great initiative providing youngsters the opportunity to explore the business world and also to challenge themselves.”
