Edge's brand new campaign, taking the concept behind VQ Day and delivering it directly to young peopleSign up to volunteer
Career Footsteps is a new campaign led by the Edge Foundation.
Working with the Education and Employers Taskforce, this
national campaign will connect schools and colleges with employers
and professionals to inspire young people, broaden their career
horizons and help them find their own path to success.
Edge believes technical, practical and professional learning
should be as valued and have the same status as academic
qualifications. By working together, schools and colleges and
employers can help young people understand and develop the skills
we need for a modern, global economy.
In 2015, 100 events were held involving over 240 volunteers.
