What is the impact of Pupils to Professionals?

Since 2014, over 600 students from Europe and Africa have been provided support by 'Pupils to Professionals' through career workshops, mentoring and work experience programs.

During these experiences, they learn about the many different areas within a company and hear from the leaders about the different career paths available to them. In recent years students have had the experience of connecting with a Global CEO, and also experience Oxbridge University taster days through our partner network. 

Our model is easily adaptable for any country and company, and something which we are happy to share with those who would like to get involved to provide similar opportunities. Please find instructions on the blog posts below and just drop us an email if you would like to know more.

We are advocates of United Nations SDG10: Reduce inequality within & among countries 

Why Pupils to Professionals?

Pupils to professionals gives young people around the world an opportunity to build both soft and technical skills, gain mentors and connect with leaders across industries through first hand work experiences & career workshops.

 

We focus on providing these opportunities to students who wouldn't get easy access to them otherwise, and have the academic potential to use the experience as a spring board to greater achievements.

For participating organisations, it provides a great way to give back, with senior leaders sharing their insights, while also providing a development opportunity for young leaders to lead a cross-functional initiative and learn to support the future workforce "Generation Z".


We are funded by Ahmed Capital Group, who support our activities with students and schools, to ensure funding is not a barrier to opportunity.

Who is the team?

Europe: Shuwel Ahmed
Africa - West: Adetokunbo Adekalu
Africa - East: James Kumbura 

The initiative started in 2014 with Shuwel Ahmed, providing UK based students international work experience opportunities.

After attending One Young World 2018 at the Hague, and connecting with Adetokunbo and James who believed in the vision of Pupils to Professionals, with their leadership the initiative expanded to Africa in 2019.
 
Through the network of young leaders made in One Young World, we've been able to help more than 600 students since inception, and expanded into Oxbridge Universities in the UK.
