​If you are a forward-looking employer of graduates or young people and are keen to ensure your teams have access to high-quality and excellent-value skills training, talk to us. For over 25 years, we have been supporting and empowering the next generation to have the skills and knowledge needed for the future - we have supported hundreds of organisations and young people on this journey. It is now more crucial than ever to prioritise skills development as we address the challenging targets for net zero and sustainable development.
 
Through our interactive workshops, reflective learning journal and remote Learning Academy, we offer a comprehensive, future-focused professional development programme to suit entry and graduate level positions in your organisation.

The Sustainable Futures programme is designed to build participants’ knowledge and awareness of sustainability, the evolving landscape of work and the importance of sustainability in all roles. We run Sustainable Futures for FE and HE students, designed to suit their particular needs and educational stages. We can also offer bespoke programmes for other bodies and institutions who wish to provide development opportunities for their members.

Sustainable Futures enables participants to understand Skills for the Future, how to develop and demonstrate key skills and embrace an appetite for lifelong learning. It supports the journey from education into work, boosting employability, confidence and workplace preparedness.

To build a regenerative future, where people and the rest of nature can thrive together, we need to think outside the box.

In this workshop, we’ll have fun developing and practising key skills for sustainability such as systems thinking, creativity and collaborative problem-solving.

Our popular one-day workshop explores in detail the three essential topics of Project Management, Communication, and Presentation. These core skills are becoming increasingly crucial across sectors, and we know many young people leave education without having received training in these fundamentals. Delivered through a blend of teaching, practical application and peer review, participants leave the workshop with the insight and technical understanding to apply and further develop these skills within the their unique work-place setting

Using core values as the foundation, we take participants through the step by step process of creating a tangible plan to understand and unlock their career goals.

When applying for jobs, the golden rule is quality over quantity. Having a career plan provides a reference point to filter job descriptions against and ascertain where to focus time and energy. This results in a higher quality application and increases the chance of successfully securing a meaningful role.

Learning vital transferable skills in communication, presentation and networking.

In this workshop we blend teaching of effective techniques with promotion of peer led discussion and the sharing of knowledge and best practice. We give each participant the opportunity to practice their communication skills in a supportive environment and build their confidence.

Sustainability is no longer a niche subject; it is critical to the survival and future success of every sector. Engage students from all disciplines with an interest in forging their career in sustainability or looking to embed sustainability into any role. This workshop will look at the skills employers want, bring sustainability and the sustainable development goals to life and look at how to approach finding a career, with CV writing tips and Interview Skills. Available as a student-focused workshop or a 'train the trainer' style workshop for your careers team.

“When it came to helping our students to understand how to prepare themselves for a career in sustainability, Megan from Change Agents’ presentation was awe-inspiring.   Not only did she provide a lot of factual information, she delivered it in an interactive and engaging way, which made it easy to absorb. The structure was clear, motivational and effective. They had obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into the content of the presentation, and because of this our students have taken away a very key message - ‘sustainability starts where you are'.”
