What makes us stand out?
In the spirit of efficiency, we’ve narrowed it down to our clients’ favourite six.
Foresight has brought careers education into the 21st Century, and our services are constantly evolving with the changing times. We’re not just thinking about today though: through research and our professional network we look to the future so we can better inform students on what’s ahead and how to be prepared.
Our services function as a bolt-on and are tailored to complement and enhance your existing careers programme, emphasizing the topics you feel are most important for your students. Every school is different, every school has its unique requirements and timetables, and we promise to meet these with efficiency and dedication.
Not only is our content great, but also the support we give you – you will be amazed how easy it is to work with Foresight. We deal with all the administration surrounding our services, from providing information and sign-up forms, to letters to parents and follow up materials. We know you’re busy, so we’ve got your back.
We have a serious responsibility to introduce concepts at the right time and in the right manner – our services are all designed with this in mind. We understand, empathise with and respect your students and also work to make each one of them feel more confident and reassured about the exciting paths ahead.
We’re social both online and offline. Our Facebook and Twitter accounts allow us to engage with students on another level and keeps the careers conversation driving forward. We’re also friendly people, we hope, and consistently get top marks for approachability from parents, students and members of staff alike.
In the words of one client, “with Foresight you get a lot of bang for a little buck”. We’re committed to keeping the cost of our prices competitive and your quote will have no hidden fees. It includes all time, admin, workbooks, follow up materials and network access. A two hour workshop can cost as little as £40!

Nick Evans, Foresight Director
Our Graduate Network
Ready and waiting to answer your questions.
When it comes to getting a graduate job, who better to consult than someone who has recently been through the process themselves and come out on top? Our graduate network brings together successful graduates from across all sectors to not only give us the inside scoop on their industry but, more importantly, to answer students’ questions, big or small.
For some programmes, one week either side of our fantastic workshop your students can ask any questions at all, be it whether or not they enjoy the day-to-day lifestyle their job provides to what time they normally finish, even whether or not they can listen to music at work.
