Support SPeakers for Schools

HELP YOUNG PEOPLE FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS

Meet Josh. Josh comes from Darlington, one of eight areas identified as having the fastest growing attainment gaps by the Education Policy Institute in their 2017 Closing the Gap? report. Josh qualifies for free school meals and doesn’t have a readymade network of contacts who can help him get ahead in his career. He has struggled with his mental health throughout the pandemic.

Last summer, Josh did virtual work experience with British Airways through Speakers for Schools. This opportunity has confirmed Josh’s desire to pursue a career in the travel industry and he plans to run his own travel company in the future.  

To get work experience even before Covid-19 was difficult, however, through Speakers for Schools, I did work experience with British Airways online which was great.

Josh, 18, from Darlington 

Speakers for Schools has been working with businesses for ten years. In that time, we have supported over 1.1 million young people like Josh to reach their potential.

SOME OF OUR CORPORATE SPONSORS

HOW CAN YOU WORK WITH US?

1. Sponsor one of our Lighthouse Campaigns

To maximise the impact of our charity’s work and offer maximum benefit to the young people we support and the employers we work with, we run three to four main lighthouse campaigns per year. Each lighthouse campaign has a specific focus and is designed to encourage young people to learn more about careers in target industries for employment growth such as the green economy, tech-accelerated careers and careers in healthcare. 

Packages for the different levels of corporate sponsorship vary, but benefits include:  

  • Opportunity to run co-branded public campaigns 
  • Early Careers, Diversity and Inclusion workshops with relevant teams led by our expert partnerships and employer teams.  
  • Opportunity for your leadership to deliver a broadcast talk for 500 – 3000 young people.

2. TALK TO US ABOUT BESPOKE PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES 

As well as opportunities for corporate sponsorship for our lighthouse campaigns, we also offer bespoke partnership opportunities for organisations whose values and aims are aligned with our own. These opportunities could involve sponsorship of a specific programme or project and can be tailored to meet your organisation’s requirements.
