The Friends of Stephenson Trust (FOST)

Bringing together people from the world of work with education to support, motivate and empower vulnerable young people to reach their full potential.

The Stephenson Trust is committed to increasing the opportunities that our students have for engaging positively with adults from the ‘world of work’. We know that young people benefit from activities such as work experience, work shadowing, workshops, careers talks, workplace visits and mentoring.

The Friends of Stephenson Trust is a network of professional people and organisations who are sympathetic to the challenges our students face and are motivated to want to help. They are  positive role models, people with interesting jobs, people who would like to inspire, motivate and encourage our young people to reach their potential.

Full training and support and insurance is provided. If you would like to find out more about the FOST or if you are an employer who would like to work with our school please contact our Careers Adviser – kerry.clifford@bridgeacademy.org.uk.
