“ThinkForward has had an amazing impact on the young people who are part of the programme. Our students have become more confident, ambitious, and value needing suitable destinations through the support of the ThinkForward coach in the school. The coach is an active member of the school staff and has a high profile amongst staff and students.”

– Oli Hamdi, Vice Principal, City of London Academy Islington


In Nottingham we work in Ellis Guilford School, Bluecoat Beechdale Academy, Nottingham University Samworth Academy, Nottingham Academy and The Wells Academy.

“ThinkForward is really good. It removes a lot of stress from parents by providing so much support and flexibility, for example taking students to college open evenings and on uni visits. ThinkForward has been amazing and has helped my daughter to make the right decisions to move forward to further education. Thank you – because of the programme and all the support you have given, my daughter now wants to go to university. I would highly recommend the programme to my friends and family, and other parents.”

– Maria, mother of a Year 11 student in Nottingham


Kent is our third location and we began enrolling pupils in 2017. We have FutureMe coaches in the Marsh Academy in New Romney, New Line Learning Academy in Maidstone, Hartsdown Academy in Margate, Robert Napier School in Gillingham and Strood Academy in Rochester.

“ThinkForward have a unique and stimulating way to engage students by taking them on trips to colleges and companies such as Bluewater, who focus on careers for students who are in danger of becoming NEET. Our students have become re-engaged and feel positive about their future prospects. Kemi has had a massive impact on our pupils, thank you!”
