What is the Access Network?
It’s a group of highly ambitious, talented 16 – 18 year olds, like you, who we select from our chosen partner schools.
The Access Network gives you an opportunity to become known – to get inside companies and build up contacts who will recommend you. Who will push for you, who will put your CV on someone’s desk who has the power to make a decision, who will fight for you?
What do we offer you?
Participants of the Access Network get access to two distinct opportunities - workshops with business leaders and a coaching programme. In the coaching programme we match you with a personal business mentor from one of our companies who will coach, mentor, and develop you over the next 9 months.
Who are we?
We are a business that care about your future.
Arrival Education has been running for 10 years and has worked with young people from all across London. Our mission is to increase social mobility by providing opportunities to young people who want to work in business, and by changing businesses so that they become more diverse & more inclusive, so that they can attract new brilliant talent and people.
In partnership with sixth forms and businesses, we offer workshops and coaching opportunities for driven students from across London.
How to join us
Currently we only recruit 16-17 year old's for the Access Network directly through our schools and 6th form partners. If you think your school should sign up to become a partner, get them to get in touch or let us know below!
If you're 18-24 then visit our Future Talent Network.
Who we work with
We are passionate about social mobility through redistributing power & influence. Because of this we select students for The Access Network based on:
Such as leadership, a desire to learn, openness, reliability, and capacity for ideas are what we look for, and our talent team can spot them.
Not your grades - we care about your ability - but schools that achieved >70% pass rate at GCSE. We want students that can rise above their environments.
We want to give the best chances to those who may not have had them, so at least 50% of students will have received Pupil Premium at school.
We want to give opportunities to people who haven't had many. We select those who attended a non fee-paying, non-selective school or 6th form.
You get access to 2 distinct opportunities.
Opportunities to network with top business leaders whilst learning & developing key employment skills such as influencing, interviewing and stress management. The workshops give you an opportunity to push yourself to grow in confidence, professionalism and knowledge.
Highly competitive 6 month leadership development programme. Stand out, committed students are matched with their own personal business coach. Through monthly one-to-one meetings you will challenge yourself to make your dreams a reality.
