Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in this country are being let down by one of the most unfair education systems in the developed world, and the knock-on effect of this injustice lasts a lifetime. It’s a cycle we’re determined to break, but we need your help. On our ground-breaking, two-year Leadership Development Programme, you’ll have the opportunity to help end educational inequality in the UK.

Join us at this presentation to learn how our graduate opportunity enables you to make an important social impact, while also offering you a career-defining opportunity to gain a formal qualification in both teaching and leadership. You will also find out how you can get involved with our mission while you are still at university through our range of undergraduate programmes.

Refreshments will be available afterwards (juice, wine and food), along with opportunities to speak to our recruiters and individuals who have already completed our programmes.

Become part of a powerful and dynamic force for social change.
