Our Partners

CforLP is proud to work with partners on many schemes and initiatives.

Two new schemes for 2021, providing support for students transitioning between school and further education, are Step Up Cumbria and Project: Next Gen.

Step Up Cumbria (previously known as Cumbria Activate Your Future) provides an online resource, launched on 19th April 2021, which aims to signpost and prepare students and ease the next step of their education and career journey. The programme has been updated in recognition that the Coronavirus pandemic has been a particularly challenging time for students and particularly for those leaving school this summer. Working together, Cumbria’s schools, Colleges, training providers and advice agencies have refreshed the online learning portal where students can access a host of careers guidance resources, followed by a collection of online resources in a range of technical skills areas.

Project: Next Gen launched on 12th April 2021 and is designed to inspire the next generation of apprentices. The scheme will provide support for those considering their next steps by engaging potential apprentices through a range of support and content, led by Carlisle College, including tips, guidance, and masterclasses on a range of areas within apprenticeships, careers and employability. The project will also encourage contribution from local employers, through the provision of high quality, localised employability content and resources, including the promotion of local apprenticeship opportunities and future career pathways.
