Each year The Switch works with over 85 schools and supports over 15,000 student opportunities to develop employability skills and prepare for the world of work by doing activities supported by volunteers from different businesses.
We also have an Alumni Network to offer continued support to students who are 16 or over who would like to continue to benefit from our support and advice.
