We inspire today’s youngsters to empower tomorrow’s workforce.

Our Work

Ablaze supports schools in Bristol who are striving for excellence and have a vision to add value to the educational experience of young people through the use of innovative, targeted additional intervention.

Our business partners are encouraged to strengthen their relationships with schools by supporting not only the academic aspirations of these young people but also their extra-curricular activities. We believe that the stronger the relationship between the business and the school, the better the outcome for its students.

Our Primary interventions range from one-off role model visits designed to inspire pupils to consider a range of different job possibilities, to longer term, individual and small group support with reading and maths. All our support is carefully developed to broaden pupils’ interpersonal and soft skills, as well as their academic development.

Our Secondary interventions focus on conquering low self-esteem, increasing confidence and inspiring young people to achieve both academically and in the workplace. Ablaze harnesses the knowledge and expertise of Bristol’s businesses to deliver a wide range of inter-connected inspirational and confidence-raising programmes that support schools todevelop social and employability skills in the city’s young people.
