About

Turbo Charging Aspirations, Attainment And Achievement

The Blair Project is a youth-led social enterprise which uses a powerful combination of motorsport and digital manufacturing to enthuse disaffected young people (aged 14-25) to pursue careers in the fast growth science, engineering, technology and digital sectors. We believe that every child matters! We are providers of vocational and technical training in digital technologies and manufacturing which makes young people want to learn. We like to work with them in a way that recognizes and builds on their strengths and potential, and boosts their educational achievement and attainment. We nurture and grow their confidence, aspirations and ambition to generate hi-tech results and help them transition onto a traineeship or apprenticeship as well as further/higher education.
