To join the Brokerage Pathway, you must:

  • Attend or have attended a state school or college in London
  • Be eligible to work in the UK

Please note that some individual opportunities and programmes that we offer have additional criteria, including geographic restrictions or minimum academic requirements.

  3. Attend your registration appointment at the Brokerage. We will ask you to bring proof of your eligibility to work in the UK, your address and your academics, which we must have seen before we can consider you for many opportunities.
