Ivy House Partnerships

The Future Leaders Project has united education and business leaders alike to level up the next generation and give them the tools to create a career and life that’s right for them.

We’re fortunate enough to work with some incredible organisations to make this a reality as you’ll see in a few short scrolls.

Not only have these organisations generously given their time, expertise and money to support The Project, they also have free resources, discounts and opportunities to continue helping you and your students.
