Schools: Work with the Social Mobility Foundation!
The Social Mobility Foundation have programmes in eleven career sectors. “If you are ambitious, motivated and need the networks and knowledge to go further, apply to our free programme now!”
Last year the Social Mobility Foundation worked with over 1,450 Year 12/S5 students from 140 local authorities across the UK, and over the last 7 years 53% of students supported by the SMF have gained places at Russell Group universities.
In order for your school to work with the SMF, all you’ll need to do is encourage students to apply, write a reference to accompany their application, and sign or stamp their eligibility form. The work they do with students takes places during the holidays, or after school, and is completely free of charge.
The deadlines for applications to the SMF 2018 cohort are based on where students live:
Glasgow – 9am, Monday 27th November 2017
London – 9am, Monday 4th December 2017
Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle – 9am, Monday 11th December 2017
Anywhere else in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales – 9am, Monday 18th December 2017
