SHAPING THE FUTURES OF DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS IS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS!
Work experience (and its funding) was officially removed from the National Curriculum in 2012, without any formal replacement… that’s where we come in!
AA Educates works in partnership with schools, businesses, organisations and volunteers to provide life-changing professional and academic opportunities for students aged 11-18 from low-income backgrounds.

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) predicts the total of unemployed young people will soon be over a million.
HOW OUR VALUES HAVE SHAPED INDIVIDUALS:
“I am grateful for the opportunities that I am given and I show appreciation”, expressed GRATITUDE.
“I keep going, even when things get tough or I face a setback”, RESILIENCE recognised.
“I know what I am capable of and I have BELIEF in myself… I am enough”, confirmed CONFIDENCE.
“I am becoming the highest, truest version of myself, filled with abundance”, affirmed AMBITION.
“Our students hugely benefited from being on the AA Educates programme and accessed real-life experiences. We now have students who would like to pursue careers in STEM, after attending a practical day of STEM, through AA Educates.”
“I believe the programme acts as a support system for schools and parents by bridging the gap between who the students are and who they can become.”
JOIN OUR PROGRAMME
Our year-long programme develops high-achievers, academically and mentally, whilst giving them direct access to opportunities to build and achieve future ambitions. Our impact stems from strengthening three core soft skills; ambition, belief and confidence, which has now become our signature 'A.B.C' approach.
Our award-winning programme includes mentoring, tutoring and professional experiences. Mentoring happens weekly and is delivered by our role model mentors, with varying professional backgrounds. All of our mentors are fully DBS checked and trained on our ABC approach.
Our tutors are fully qualified teachers, mostly volunteering from independent schools and universities. We also have our own team of internal qualified teachers, on hand to deliver our fortnightly tuition too .
Refreshments are kindly provided by the local community and made available for each session.
