  • Shaping Your Future: using our network of supporting organisations and professional alumni to provide career guidance to recent alumni
  • Villiers Park INVOLVE: enhancing everyday classroom learning through using our participants to enrich the learning community in their schools and colleges
  • Advisory Service: helping schools and colleges to reflect on their current practice and develop it so all students, including the most able, are stretched and challenged
