Empowering young people
Our education programmes aim to raise the aspirations and improve the educational attainment of local disadvantaged young people. With our community partners, we drive social mobility through the development of life, employability and interpersonal skills.
Arrival Education champions diversity. It aims to transform communities by helping young people develop the skills, confidence and networks that will help them thrive in their future careers.
Morpeth School is a mixed comprehensive school in Tower Hamlets, east London. It serves young people aged 11 to 19-years-old who reflect the diversity of the local community.
The Change Foundation
The Change Foundation engages marginalised and at risk young people through sport. It provides opportunities to help to cultivate self-development, empowerment and new pathways to employment.
The Arrival Education youth development programme aims to transform social mobility outcomes for 16-18 year-olds through a series of skills workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions at the Investec offices.
Over the years, our volunteers have spent more than 4,000 hours with the students and formed more than a hundred coaching relationships, with the aim of creating the high performers and wealth creators of the future.
Morpeth School is a mixed comprehensive school in Tower Hamlets, east London. It serves young people aged 11 to 19 who reflect the diversity of the local community. We’ve supported Morpeth since 2002, helping pupils to develop skills, overcome barriers they may face and achieve their life goals. Our support extends to helping fund the morning breakfast club which provides all pupils attending Morpeth School with a nourishing breakfast every morning.
In 2016 we introduced a bursary fund. It awards sixth form students with a small grant to help contribute to the costs of starting university, an apprenticeship or attending interviews. We also support the school to take part in Outward Bound, a residential activity week, which has enabled more than 730 young people to participate in confidence-building courses.
The Change Foundation
The Change Foundation engages marginalised and at risk young people through sport. It provides opportunities to help to cultivate self-development, empowerment and new pathways to employment. As of 2019, Investec also exclusively supports Girls Win, a sports programme which aims to help young women with a disability to set short, medium and long-term goals.
The project encourages young women to think more positively about their future and engages them in activities that keep both body and mind healthy. The programme aims to engage 50 young women with a disability in a variety of sporting activities and challenges.
“Pupils have learned skills in a real workplace environment and the impact on both their academic work and aspirations is tangible.”
Jemima Reilly, headteacher at Morpeth School
