Future First hoping to show private education isn’t everything

Charity Future First have launched “Inspiring City Role Models”, which hopes to change the perception that a private education means everything. They also hope to disprove the notion that it’s impossible to break into certain professions, such as law or banking, with having paid for your education. 

Alex Shapland-Howes, the Managing Director of Future First and Louise Desrosiers, a barrister, joined Headline London to discuss the scheme and to explain the work they’re doing to encourage those from less privileged backgrounds to pursue any career they like. 

They also discussed the problems and prejudices that do still persist within certain industries.
