We have been working in partnership with the ASOS Foundation since 2010 to support young people build key STEM skills and be inspired into the world of Fashion and Technology. 2017 marks a special year as the ASOS Foundation has reached a fantastic £1million fundraising milestone to support our work.
The ASOS Foundation has opened its doors to over 318 people delivering action-packed courses to build confidence and skills in tech, retail, fashion, customer care and lots more.
From writing code, creating blogs and working on app development projects through to Tech themed programmes to learning about a product’s life-cycle and building experience in buying, merchandising and brand through Fashion courses. All this, plus developing customer service skills and taking part in employability workshops through programmes delivered in the ASOS Customer Care Hub; ASOS volunteers have continued to deliver the most high-energy, interactive quality programmes.
Omar who completed our Get Started with Fashion course said:
We are thrilled that 14 young people have moved into jobs working at ASOS and are continuing to thrive in their roles.
On top of this, others have been supported with the right equipment including computer software, course fees and qualifications to move into work through ASOS-funded Development Awards.
The ASOS Foundation have also helped us to inspire thousands more young people by creating our fantastic ASOS in STEM video content. These creative videos have been a huge success, being viewed over 46,813 times already. We are thrilled that this year the ASOS Foundation is helping us reach even more young people by working together on the digital activation of Prince’s Trust Online.
This year marks a special milestone as the ASOS Foundation has reached a fantastic £1million fundraising milestone.
