EY Foundation - Smart Futures 2019

Target audience - Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
EY runs a 3 week work placement in June of each year, followed by 10 months mentoring, for Fifth Year students in state schools only, who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years (i.e. household income is below £16,105 in Scotland). We are looking to come to schools to talk to classes, preferably PSE classes, to highlight the programme and encourage applications. These talks are ideal for the whole class, we do not want to single out only eligible students.

The EY Foundation (an independent charity founded by the professional services firm, Ernst & Young) are running a paid work experience programme for Fifth Year students, called Smart Futures and we would like to encourage your students to apply. (Participation in this programme is at no cost to schools).
Smart Futures is a ten month programme, which starts with a three week paid work experience placement (£175 per week for the three weeks)in our Edinburgh office in June 2019, where students will gain a variety of transferable skills that will give them a head start in their career.
During the three week paid work experience element of the programme, participants will work towards achieving a level 2 qualification in team leadership which is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
After the work experience ends an EY Foundation mentor will be available to support the young people throughout their final year at school and advise them on one of the biggest career choices they will make - the first step in their working life. Students will also be invited to a series of alumni events throughout this time. The programme can make students more employable, helping them to get a job after school or go onto higher education.

The programme is for Fifth Year students in state schools only, who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

There are 12 places available on this programme and the three work paid work experience will take place on week's commencing 24/6, 1/7 and 8/7. Applications are welcome from West Lothian, Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian, Fife and any surrounding areas of Edinburgh where young people are willing to travel to Edinburgh for the three week paid work experience element of the programme.

We are hoping to arrange visits to present to students about the programme and encourage applications. We can be flexible and are very happy to come in to speak to your students at a time that’s convenient to you.

We appreciate that there are many activities underway already within schools, but we know from our previous participants’ experience that this is a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain a real insight into the world of work, and we are excited to share that opportunity with your pupils.
