Support us

Working Options in Education is a careers education programme developed by registered charity Monkey Business Foundation. We provide all our services to sixth form colleges and young people free of charge. Your financial support is vital to enable us to reach and inspire more young people to realise their full potential.  You can also help us by volunteering as speaker, providing opportunities for work placements/work experience and attending our fundraising events.

Volunteer as a speaker

Our motivation and information sessions in state sixth form colleges are led by speakers from industry. We’re always on the lookout for new speakers and welcome individuals from all levels and disciplines within the food, drink and retail industry.

Support individual students

If your company is able to offer an environment where students can get much needed work experience, has work placements suitable for sixth form college leavers or is able to fund bursaries for individual students, get in touch.
