Alternative Provision

​We support Year 10 and 11 students who have been taken out of mainstream education in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Futures works on behalf of Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council to support Year 10 and 11 students who have been taken out of mainstream education.

We work with ten dedicated ‘alternative provision’ providers across the City and County to give young people who cannot continue in mainstream education the chance to succeed, plan and train for a positive future.

Young people are referred to alternative providers for a variety of reasons and it is our role to ensure they still receive educational support, while preparing them for the world of work and further education. Our Careers Coaches will work with young people on a one-to-one basis to help plan and prepare for their future.

We work with local employers to offer alternative provision students the opportunity to volunteer, take part in work experience or careers workshops, taster days and learn from employers about future career options. We aim to make sure each student has at least four interactions with employers to build their confidence, understanding of the world of work, and develop their CV.

We’re proud to work with alternative provision providers across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
