About us

Derby is one of twelve areas in England chosen as an Opportunity Area, and forms a part of the government’s efforts to unlock the true potential of England’s young people.

From a child’s early education to their post-16 learning, outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people in Derby are well below the national average.

Through working in partnership with local organisations, businesses, schools, colleges and the voluntary sector we will aim to overcome these challenges – providing every individual with the chance to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.
