We do this through running school programmes in areas where the GFG Alliance has a significant presence, helping to give students some important skills to help them towards being job-ready after school. These include STEM based learning programmes, designed to involve students in problem solving real-world issues that are happening in their local communities.
Throughout this there is a strong focus on self-esteem building, so that students develop a confidence in using their own voice, expressing their points of view, so they are better able to navigate an adult world after school.
We work with several partners to deliver both student programmes and a variety of scholarships.
In the UK, our main partner is the Engineering Development Trust, or EDT, who deliver the Industrial Cadet programme, which was inspired by HRH The Prince of Wales.
