    Allstars is proud to support Working Options in Education. Working Options in Education helps young people fulfil their potential by developing employability and life skills. Our Career Pathways Programme, delivered free with state schools and colleges, supports young people facing additional challenges caused by the pandemic, prioritising those from disadvantaged regions.
