What is Successful Futures?
Successful Futures is a Careers, STEM and Enterprise programme which aims to bring together schools and businesses through a year-round structured programme of activity designed to support young people with skills development and knowledge for the workplace; future education choices; overcome barriers to learning and inspires them to plan for and achieve a successful future. It is a blend of traded and funded activities in collaboration with the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership and The Careers and Enterprise Company. Our aim is to provide employers with an easy pathway to engage with young people.
