Mastering My Future

Westminster’s flagship employability programme is led by 2-3 Degrees, to help open doors for young people in the workplace.

Through workshops and events, mentoring and work experience, the programme collaborates with local businesses to create meaningful career-focused opportunities in the borough.


Who are 2-3 Degrees?

2-3 Degrees inspire and equip young people with the power to make positive decisions. Through talks and workshops, 2-3 Degrees builds the confidence of young people to take practical steps towards achieving their goals. Since launching in March 2016, we have worked with over 5,000 young people across sport, community and education.

What is Mastering My Future?

Mastering My Future is a 12 month employability programme for young people aged 14-25 in Westminster and Kensington boroughs. With the support of the Young Westminster Foundation, 2-3 Degrees has created a programme which offers free workshops, virtual work experience and mentoring.

The programme is designed to raise young people’s awareness of the employability opportunities available to them and help them build the necessary skills in confidence, self-esteem and communication to engage with leading employers.  

What we achieved through Mastering my Future since August 2020:

1000 virtual sign-ups with an average of 60 young people in each workshop 

80% of all young people rated the workshops with a score of 8+ (10 the highest)

24 workshops since August 2020 with free mentoring and work experience opportunities 

Engaged with 37 employers in Westminster (PwC, Microsoft, TikTok, BNP Paribas, Google, Willmott Dixon & Total Media and many more)
