“I found it helpful when Mark told me I could contact him whenever if I needed extra help with anything.”

We provide support so that school leavers go further
Key to Potential provides support to young people about to leave school to get into college, get training or find
work. Most young people we work with have disengaged with school for various reasons - but
we help them understand the choices available and what they can do next.
How it works
- We offer high quality, regular one-to-one sessions to work out the person’s future career needs.
- We demonstrate the options available to the person - for example visits to college,
finding training programmes or helping them with CVs, application forms and interview
- We help the person find work experience placements. They can also complete work
experience at our Community Garden or Farm.
What happens next?
Most people end up where they want to be - in suitable training, college or work. But our support doesn’t need to end there. Our Key to Potential Volunteer Mentor can continue to support the person ensure they successfully stay on the right path.
