We are pleased to announce that the Social Mobility Foundation’s free Aspiring Professionals Programme is now open for 2019. We would be would be delighted if you could share this email with relevant contacts.
Aspiring Professionals Programme (APP)
The APP supports high achieving Year 13 students from low income backgrounds across the UK to access top universities and careers. We offer support through our four pillars:
How students receive our four pillars of support is dependent on where they live. Please see below for further details of the programmes we offer.
Watch our video to hear from SMF students.
Students must apply by Friday 21st of December 2018 by completing our application form here.
APP Residential offers the opportunity to undertake a one or two week internship with a top employer in London with all expenses paid. In addition to the internship, students receive skill sessions and university application support whilst on the residential. Their mentor will be from the employer that they undertake their placement with.
APP Residential is available to students interested in:
Accountancy | Banking & Finance| Digital | Engineering & Physics | Law | Medicine* | No Preference
We are very keen to work with schools, colleges and parts of the country that do not usually have young people on our programmes. Therefore, if this applies to you and your top achievers don’t quite meet our criteria, you should encourage them to apply as they may still be eligible to receive support from us.
APP Reach is designed to offer as many aspects of our programme as we can to people who could benefit from our activities and resources, subject to our capacity and their location. All students will receive a mentor and access to online resources. To find out more about APP Reach, please contact us.
Find our teacher guidance notes here.

Deadline – Friday 21st of December 2018
Please encourage your students to apply!
“The summer residential internship at Jacobs was everything that I was hoping it would be and more! It provided me with countless opportunities that I never would have had otherwise. I’ve networked with and met professionals and it’s built up so many of my skills, as well as building my confidence. I have made friends for life on this programme and it’s all thanks to the SMF” – Amy, 2018 Cohort, County Londonderry
Please let me know if I can help to support student applications or answer questions. We are keen to support as many students from Loreto Grammar School as possible this year.
