We are passionate about nurturing and developing the talents and aspirations of young people throughout their learning journey. We work with schools, educators, youth groups and employers through a range of programmes which bring current and future leaders together to learn from and inspire one another. Our work takes place with schools and youth settings from year 7 to year 13. These enrichment opportunities can be life-changing experiences for young people, broadening their horizons and instilling a new confidence in themselves and in their futures.

Programmes for Young People
Working in collaboration with local businesses and organisations CforLP has created a range of programmes and interventions that develop the life skills of young people, build confidence and aspirations in readiness for their future careers. These include leadership masterclasses, enterprise schemes, social action and campaigning programmes and high quality work awareness and leadership programmes including ProjX and Dream Placement. Many of these programmes align to curriculum and also help schools to achieve their Gatsby benchmarks. Find out about the wide range of activities and programmes that the CforLP delivers to inspire young leaders. We also design and deliver bespoke solutions, so please get in touch and see how CforLP can support your young people.
Programmes for Educators
Do you need help to motivate or upskill your team? We offer a number of development programmes that are relevant to those working in education or with young people, many of which provide opportunities to meet and learn with other local leaders. We can also design a programme tailored to your needs and offer workshops for staff on a range of topics from resilience to coaching skills, and provide leadership training for your school, college council or youth provision.
Get in touch if your school would like to register their interest for any of our programmes or speak to a member of the team. Find out how we can help support your school and how you can support our secondary programmes whilst developing your own skills.
