Passport to success

Passport to Success focuses on pairing students with mentors from key London industries: financial services, health, travel and tourism and utilities.

Students aged 14-19 are mentored for one year by someone from the business community (including university and medical school staff).

As they complete a series of activities with support from their mentor, students work towards achieving a 'passport' which will help their progression into further education, higher education or employment.

What happens?

Companies providing mentors so far include Norton Rose Fullbright, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst Young are and Time Inc.

Each company agrees to recruit 5-10 mentors. Volunteers agree to spend around two hours a month on mentoring, for one year. Each mentors is supported by the student's school or college, and by Southwark EBA. All mentors are have to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

'Students learn from people who are actually working in different fields, which is a million times better than us just telling them about it.'
