Campaigns & Talk Series

Campaigns help us pack a punch with showing students that leading figures today are committed to helping give them a leg up, and show the world there is more work to be done. These come in the form of talk series that mobilise 25-40 top figures around an issue or industry focus important to young people in state schools. These talk series help key figures show their collective support in helping students prepare for their futures, galvanise their message for students and encourage their peers to give their time too.

Our campaigns over the years have included partners from Google, BAFTA to 30% Club UK, bringing out a range of themes. Read about these past campaigns and talk series below.
