Working with

From the outset, Education and Employers has sought to involve as many partners with an interest in connecting schools and employers as possible. We have brought together organisations across government, education, the third sector and, above all, businesses of different sizes and sectors.

What links them all is a shared desire to make a positive difference to young peoples’ future lives and the long term prosperity of society.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has been a key strategic partner since 2012 and is the lead corporate supporter of the Inspiring the Future campaign. It has helped fund this core programme – and also continues to lead the way in terms of participation, with over 1000 of its employees now engaged with schools and colleges through Inspiring the Future.
