Equity in education: giving young learners the best career chances

The world of work is changing and we’re consistently seeing a demand for new skills and job roles. Yet barriers such as restricted funding, administrative burden, and placement availability reduce the ability to provide young learners' with equal insights into modern workplace.

Work experience and careers education can directly influence young people’s employment opportunities and support social mobility – yet it’s not a level playing field. The learning gap following and reliance on students finding their own careers experience only exacerbate employment inequity, as those from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to secure meaningful placements.

Through Inspire – our free-of-charge learning programme, we’re providing a window into the world of work, driving employment equity across the UK and enabling better futures.

Careers education shouldn’t be a burden, but a vital way of putting learning into context. This service is free for all schools, granting more young learners the right to critical careers insights – no matter their location or personal circumstances.

Through a collaborative learning approach, we’re working to enable every student to make informed choices and realize their future ambitions.
