Our 2019 cohort had over 1,700 young people from 165 local authorities across the UK.

In order for your school to work with the SMF, all you’ll need to do is encourage students to apply, sign or stamp their eligibility form, and write a reference to accompany their application.  The work we do with students takes places during the holidays, or after school, and is completely free of charge.


Personal and Guidance Tutor, Charles Knight, works at Birkenhead Sixth Form College said:

“Working with the SMF has been incredibly beneficial for our students. Experiencing what the SMF has to offer gives the students focus and support in their chosen field, and the ambition to go on and achieve in their selected careers.”
