Career Footsteps campaign

A campaign led by the Edge Foundation, Career Footsteps 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.

Find out about Edge's Career Footsteps campaign, which takes the concept behind VQ Day and delivers it directly to young people.

Through the Education and Employers Taskforce's ‘Inspiring the Future’ programme, volunteers will be matched with schools to share their stories of success.They will talk about how taking a vocational route got them where they are today and encourage young people to consider careers and pathways they might not have previously known about.

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.
