What Is A Young Professional Provider?

A Young Professional Provider is an organisation that wants to embed the Young Professional throughout its delivery. Becoming a Young Professional Provider is free to any organisation we simply ask Providers to complete evaluation data with us twice a year and ask that they promote our annual Youth Voice Census.

Young Professional Providers get access to:

  • Our Group Management System which allows you to monitor and evidence progress
  • Specialist CPD support
  • A monthly forum with other providers to share best practice and learning

For more information on becoming a Young Professional Provider email We look forward to hearing from you.

How can Providers embed Young Professional Training in careers learning?

Boosting young people’s knowledge and confidence has never been so easy!

Providers are able to use the Young Professional Programme and our other free resources to support their existing delivery. From a whole setting approach with launch events and example delivery plans to a more ad hoc and personalised programme, you can use as much or as little as you and the young people in your network need.

“Excellent for information delivered in both written and visual formats to keep students interested.”
