We have worked with hundreds of businesses and public and third sector employers over a number of years. We have recently match-funded the award-winning Fast Trackers programme where young people engage with university engineering departments, Network Rail, and Mott MacDonald to explore what careers working on HS2 will look like.
What employers have said
It has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Higher Horizons and partners to develop and deliver the fully-accredited and award-winning outreach programme, Fast Trackers. With their continued commitment, the programme has developed to become an industry-leading exemplar of best-practice and has also received commendation in academic circles for the careers support it passes on to young learners. Working with academic partners is important to Network Rail, in particular, it is imperative that we support the next generation of employees to make properly informed academic and career choices that underpin our successful and expanding sector.James Richards, Network Rail
