Connect with LTSB
LTSB is a social mobility charity that prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful roles with major firms. We make sure those at risk of under-employment find careers equal to their ambition and ability, and can contribute from their first day on the job.
We focus attention on communities where leadership potential is often wasted and we empower young people in the locations that we work to become future business leaders.
LTSB’s vision is “a world where all young people flourish, regardless of your background.” We address all forms of disadvantage: personal, in terms of adverse life events; socio-economic, in terms of class boundaries or lack of social capital; and practical, in terms of preparation young people need for the working world.
Employers increasingly recognise the importance of recruiting young talented individuals from diverse backgrounds. 90% of our employers find that recruiting through LTSB is an effective way of finding diverse, capable young people for entry-level positions, and 83% of our employers agree that our apprentices have been a positive influence on the workplace
Our candidates are capable of making a valuable contribution to an employer but they are held back by a lack of social capital and life skills. Schools do not adequately prepare them for the world of work, which is why we put so much importance on the pre-work phase of our programme.
Young people in the areas where we work need help to overcome a variety of barriers, lack of opportunity and often generations of unemployment. We provide them with a real chance and a helping hand to ignite their spark and to develop into well rounded members of their community and dedicated, hard working employees who can ultimately become leaders, movers and shakers.
LTSB offer 3 different intensive programmes throughout the year, where you are prepared for the world of work.

LTSB Young People Quotes
"Joining the LTSB apprenticeship programme has not only gotten me a fullfiling full-time position, but it's afforded me to reach the level of independence I've sought after for years with moving out comfortably and having my own place."
Josh Brown Edinburgh The Natwest Growup: IT Management Apprenticeship
"Before obtaining my place on the apprenticeship scheme, I was stuck in a 0-hour job with no real means for career development and with no way of achieving the life I envisioned for myself. That all changed after I applied for the LTSB apprenticeship program. In the short 3 weeks I spent doing interactive virtual learning days with the exceptional staff at LTSB, I was able to hone and perfect skills I already had and obtain completely new ones simultaneously. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process, met some amazing people along the way and couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone that’s willing to put the time and effort into it because the rewards are truly life changing. With my new job within NatWest, I’m finally able to move into a place of my own and the envisioned life I mentioned earlier has become much more of a reality than a fantasy. Thanks LTSB!"
