Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.

CareerWave is a quality-driven provider of Career Guidance, proud to work for the people within our communities. They primarily work with schools, sixth forms, colleges, other education providers and individuals to create brighter futures. They are recommended by those they work with, enjoying long lasting and productive partnerships as a result.

They have achieved The matrix Standard, demonstrating their commitment to the provision of the highest quality career guidance.

CareerWave also proudly upholds the values of the wider careers profession. Their wonderful team are all members of the Career Development Institute and hold the title of Registered Career Development Professional (RCDP)– a status only held by those with the right professional qualifications, commitment to Continuous Professional Development and adherence to the CDI’s Code of Ethics.

CareerWave’s services and products are measured against the Gatsby Benchmarks. This is reflected in their practice, policies and processes. They were actively involved in the ‘Gatsby Good Career Guidance’ pilot in the North East of England and continue to support the national aims and objectives of the benchmarks.
