Our London coaches

Coaching disadvantaged children in Edinburgh and London to help them fulfil their potential #GivingBack.

At Trainline, we believe in giving back which is why we partner with Future Frontiers, an award-winning charity that believes all young people can be motivated by their aspirations.

We work with them to help equip students from disadvantaged backgrounds with the information, skills and mindset to dream big and fulfil their potential.

This year 39 Trainliners from our Edinburgh and London office became Career Coaches to 44 students, to help them increase their motivation and performance in school. In a four- week programme our people will help students explore careers that match their strengths and interests, and coach them on building practical connections to what they may want to do when they leave education.
