“We believe that our young people are going to be changemakers and it starts now with their leadership. The Future Leaders Project is such a great opportunity for young people to celebrate who they are, and who they want to be. We are excited to work with Ivy House to celebrate the amazing potential in a generation of young people.”

Rachel Johnson, CEO, PiXL

“Schools know just how important it is to teach their pupils self-leadership and life skills. What’s the best way to do this? And how can they make sure that their pupils are learning the skills that really are the most useful and valued in the world of work? Step in Ivy House, experts in this area who are passionate about helping young people. They have collaborated with top businesses to create the outstanding Future Leaders Project. Its purpose is to help young people, whatever their background, to understand what leadership looks like and, crucially, to teach them to become leaders of their own lives.”

Jonnie Noakes, Head of Teaching and Learning, Eton College

“At globalbridge we are extremely excited to be involved with The Future Leaders Project. The global pandemic has created a generation of resilient young people. This group contains some incredible future leaders who have been forced to react to new innovative ways of learning and communicating. The timing of this project is cutting edge and could not be better. Fantastic to be involved, helping young people evidence their talent stack.”

Ben Mason, Founder & CEO, globalbridge

“We are thrilled to be supporting Ivy House with The Future Leaders Project. We are passionate about hearing what young people, the future leaders of tomorrow, have got to say on the issues of today.”

Penny Lamb, Director of Partnerships, VotesforSchools

“This is a truly exciting project. It brings together real people, from all backgrounds, who have taken completely different paths – all of whom are passionate about supporting young people to make the right decisions for them. This is about inspiring the next generation, showing them that anything is possible and giving them the encouragement they need to step up and become the leaders of their lives.”

Elke Edwards, Founder & Creative Director, Ivy House

Knowledge is power.
Skills are the future.

The Future Leaders Project will equip young people with the knowledge to help them make the important decisions they’ll face about their future in the next few years.

But what happens after that?

To put it plainly, knowledge is not enough. Students need the skills to stand out in a globally competitive market; skills that employers are actively seeking and that ensure they are prepared for life beyond the classroom.

The Ivy House Award develops the critical leadership and life skills students need to thrive. Created by industry experts, The Award is a game-changer for schools passionate about human development.
