WHAT WE DO
Still At School
Making The Leap has a number of excellent interventions for school children. These range from educational courses preparing children for work experience, to programmes targeted at boosting a child’s motivation and performance. Delivered by a team of expert staff and highly-trained & committed volunteers, our tailored sessions expose pupils to the soft skills, behaviours and attitudes needed to succeed in – and beyond – school.
We are also highly experienced at running successful one-off events in schools, including Mock Interview Days, University or Career Fairs, or bespoke events which aim to raise children’s aspirations. In 2019, we delivered to 12,146 school pupils: over 3,000 more than in 2018 and with that figure set to increase again in 2020. Our feedback from pupils and teachers attests to the significant value our programmes have on each individual child.
