Since its launch in 2011 over 55,000 young people have benefited from Make the Grade, which is expanding rapidly every year.
Young people find the experience of investigating career options frustrating and uninspiring. Too many of them refer to jobs and industries that were common during their parents’ youth and lack knowledge on the types of skills that are needed right now in their local area.
Make the Grade focuses on bringing ideas and inspiration through real-life, hands-on experiences about future career paths to our young people. In a culture where they’re used to information coming to them, why should information about careers and the world of work be any different?
