— ThinkForward's Mission Statement
Our ThinkForward programme provides long-term coaching to get young people ready for work.
The DFN-MoveForward programme develops the work-readiness of young people with mild to moderate learning difficulties.
ThinkForward and DFN-MoveForward operate in four regions of the UK.
ThinkForward was created in 2011 by Impetus following its research into how to dramatically reduce the likelihood of young people becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training). They are still a strategic partner today.
Attendance, attainment, behaviour and exam results are all important in ensuring young people make a successful transition from education into employment.
Help us to prevent the next generation of youth unemployment.
MoveForward works in London, Kent and the West Midlands with young people who have mild to moderate learning disabilities with the aim of supporting them into sustainable paid employment.
“ThinkForward has proved in practise with real young people that it has truly understood the value of preventing rather than treating the challenge of young people who are NEET (not in education, employment or training), that’s just one of the reasons I love working with them.”
