Funded project by Department for Education

We've been gathering a range of stories about the project Our Future Derby. Below are some videos showing schools and volunteers who have participated in the workshops and they explain why this is such an important project to raise children's aspirations, which will then lead to a better talent pool in the future for companies to recruit from.

Want to share your career story?

We are looking for volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds in all forms of job roles. Your commitment can be as much, or as little, as you can offer; from giving up just one hour to share your career journey in an assembly, to supporting a day of inspiring activities at a local school.
