Prepare for the world of work

The Parents

"Ayo has become a more positive and confident young man.  The networking events and Guru Lectures have encouraged him to grasp opportunities with both hands, and the mentoring programme has opened up so many doors for him. Meeting other young people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures has lead him to understand and respect others - the positive peer pressure has been amazing. His internship at Atkins has given him a real head start and an insight into the work of civil and structural engineers, and this had lead him to pursue a career in Civil Engineering.Thank you Career Academies UK - he really does believe the sky is the limit!" Ayo's Mum, Deborah 

"The Career Academy has been a brilliant experience for Hashim. It's opened so many doors for him; he's learnt that he can talk to anyone. Kids who grow up in an area like this don't always get the opportunities they deserve. But if you have the right support from home and college, there's no reason why the world isn't your oyster." Hashim's Mum, Nassim

"It can be difficult for a parent to help their children choose the right career path. The Career Academy allows the student to see the real world with their own eyes and therefore understand the importance of being responsible and working hard. Both my daughters are now more confident and have a clear vision of what they want from their lives. I would definitely recommend it." Agne and Ieva's Mum, Remigija
