I'm a young person

We run three different programmes that could help you to get the job you want.

Are you looking for paid work experience and to develop the key employability skills employers look for?

 

Are you ready to get a great start to your future career?

 

We want to hear from you.


The EY Foundation Programmes are exclusively for young people who are aged 16 and above, and have been recently eligible for free school meals, a college bursary or Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA). We also have a specific programme designed for young people with experience in care.


Which programme is right for me?

If you wish to apply directly yourself, then Smart Futures is for you.

 

The Our Future and Beyond Your Limits programmes run on a referral system from a teacher, a social worker or other youth worker. Share the programme pages with them to see if they can support you to take part in either of these programmes.

 

If you are unsure and have any questions, please email us at enquiries@eyfoundation.ey.com and our friendly team can help!
