Star Track

Star Track is a fellowship programme for aspiring 18–24 year olds across the UK and it runs from January to June 2016. Although Star Track has already begun for this year, please do apply here to register your interest and we will keep you updated with the latest.

 

You will love the Star Track Fellowship, particularly if:

  1. You have no idea what career you should be going for and need a little bit of help figuring it all out.
  2. You do know the general direction you kinda want to go in career-wise but you’re lacking the guidance, confidence, networks and/or resources to help you get there.

We work with you to help you find the next steps of your journey, identify your strengths and skills, as well as introduce you to a network of awesome people that can help you get closer to your dream career.

Towards the end of the programme, we hope to throw in a few paid work opportunities along with a bit of training to make your CV glow just that little bit more. Check out one opportunity that some young people got to take part in:

Our aim is for you to finish the programme with a sense of self-assurance and confidence about how to reach your own career goals.

If you’re selected onto the fellowship, you become a “co-creator” because you will not just be a participant—but someone who actively shapes the programme as you travel through it. Check out what co-creators Cherish, Marta and Tasmia had to say about their experiences from our last programme. Or you can watch some of our other co-creators from previous years talk about Star Track below:

 Still with us? Great. You should know that the programme is made up of several components, including:

  • weekly 45-minute online small group coaching sessions, using Skype or Google+, led by an experienced professional;
  • monthly one-to-one sessions with a trained coach, focusing on mapping out a career trajectory plan;
  • a range of research activities and chances for personal reflection;
  • a “paying it forward” project designed by the co-creators to share their learning with their peers;
  • access to experts to answer questions around different career sectors and employability advice;
  • access to experiential training opportunities, internships and paid work experience; and
  • collaborative workshops and additional interactive and networking events.

You need to fulfil at least component of our criteria and have internet access in order to apply. The first stage application only takes a few minutes, and you can complete it online here
