The charity is also working with universities to find ways to identify these youngsters during the university admissions process.

A spokesman for Addleshaws said: "Making available this opportunity will not only allow the young person to get an insight into a career they might not have had information about, but also provide them with an experience that they can trade on to get into a good university and future employment."
The charity has identified 85 candidates from the London Borough of Redbridge predicted to attain at least one 'A' and two 'Bs' at A-level.
