RedBorder Education CIC: Your Time To Shine (YTTS)

 

YOUR TIME TO SHINE

“Promoting happy and healthy career choices for 11 –18yr olds!”

Created to introduce every young person to entrepreneurship in order for them to make informed career choices based on their skills, ambitions and wellbeing.

CONTEXT

Career guidance in English schools has been much criticised over the years.

In 2013 Ofsted and the House of Commons Education Committee produced important but critical reports. The reports highlighted that there was a lack of career guidance in schools to suitably equip the next generation in order to support them to make informed career choices.

RedBorder Ltd, recognised that the only option being offered to young people is that of an employee rather than being a business owner or an employer. and decided to create YOUR TIME TO SHINE.
