SMBP is a volunteer-led charity which brings together over 170 professional services firms, commercial organisations and professional sports teams committed to supporting students from low income backgrounds in their pursuit of a career. SMBP programmes are currently run in various towns and cities across the UK as well as a National Online Week for students in more rural areas.

Students who take part in SMBP benefit from visiting four different businesses in a week, gaining an insight into each and developing their key skills through interactive business games. Students also spend a day at a professional sports club where they learn about the psychology of resilience, coping mechanisms and goal achievement models.

Following their application students are given access to the Student App where they can register, access everything they need for the SMBP week and additional career support. Following the week, students are given access to the SMBP Career Mentoring platform which supports them through their career journey.
