About us

2nd Chance is an innovative and ground-breaking six month ‘education to employment’ training programme.  We support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (aged 19-24), who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) to find sustained employment with prospects.

We do this in three ways.  First, we work with each participant to develop attitudes, behaviours and skills to be successful in their first career role. Second, through innovative project based learning developed with employers, we support young people to gain the basic skills and qualifications that they need in ICT, numeracy and literacy (up to GCSE or Functional Skills level 2) to create successful and fulfilling careers. Third, we offer a variety of opportunities to work with a range of employers in a structured work experience programme.

The first 2nd Chance College opened in Southwark at the end of June 2013. In our first year, over 60 students were effectively supported by 2nd Chance and we are looking to work with 120+ young people in 2014-2015.  We are a new and dynamic organisation, passionate about enabling young people to succeed, and take pride in working together as a high performing, fun and entrepreneurial team.
