Talent Foundry Coast to Coast Ride 2021

Why we need your help

Coast to Coast Ride 2021 

We are an education charity called The Talent Foundry (TTF) set up in 2009. We help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds discover what they are amazing at, develop valuable new employment skills and take that first step into the world of work. 

Every year, we work with around 60,000 young people giving them access to a whole range of different programmes that run from Year 7 through to the sixth form.   

We aim to equip the students with the skills and confidence to apply for meaningful work and to break down some of the barriers that exist for so many disadvantaged young people. We help them change their way of thinking and see that careers they had previously considered as being for other people could also be for them. 

Over the next 5 years, through our Bridge programme, we want to work with at least an additional 5,000 school leavers, giving them the training and confidence to secure some of the best apprenticeship roles in the country. 

The Coast-to-Coast Ride 2021 from Carlisle to Newcastle will raise funds for the Bridge or our core costs, with riders tackling 250 miles in just three days!  

Our Bridge programmes create a unique pre-apprenticeship partnership between major employers and our UK-wide network of over 1,600 schools. The intensive programme is co-curated and delivered by TTF and each employer, and provides organisations with access to a diverse talent pipeline.  

We know what we do works, and we are proud of what we have achieved so far.  But there is so much more to be done. Especially now.  

The funds raised on the Coast-to-Coast Ride 2021 will go towards supporting the Bridge or towards our core costs, and the thousands of students that we will help to take that important next step.
