Schools need to communicate with a bigger and more demanding set of stakeholders than ever before, but many lack the resources and time to do so on a daily basis. This is where Ambitious Minds can help.
Drawing on the marketing, PR and journalism expertise within Ambitious Minds, we devise, manage and implement effective PR and communications strategies for our clients that sustain and enhance the reputation of their school or college.
Our classroom-based simulation, Keep the Cash!, has been described by EdExcel as “inspirational, aspirational, future-proof and a no-brainer”.
We work with groups of young people, in schools and other organisations, enabling them to experience what life will be like once they leave education – managing their money, paying bills, applying for jobs, attending job interviews.
Find out more about how Keep the Cash! is giving young adults the skills they need to succeed.
Ambitious Minds helps young people to achieve their aspirations through a programme of life-skills education, firmly rooted in financial comprehension. We equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to successfully make the transition from education to employment and to build their own independent adult lives.
Our work is supported by data-led research which focuses on the range of challenges that young people and their families face in today’s tough economic times.
Young people and their families face a hugely uncertain future as a result of the acute problems caused by the global recession and the chronic changes of policies, attitudes and approaches to education, employment, housing and personal finance over the last generation.
Our research seeks to illuminate the consequences of these twin factors in the context of young people building independent, sustainable adult lives for themselves.
