Mission Statement

Bringing business and education together to enhance the aspirations and career prospects of young, enthusiastic people aged 16-19.

Description

Career Ready is a UK wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people.

We offer a structured programme of study for 16-19 year olds, that sits alongside students’ school or college coursework. It is delivered by employer volunteers who provide masterclasses, mentoring, workplace visits and internships to help our students compete with the best in the country.

Career Ready gives students with little family background of higher education or professional careers the confidence, skills and networks to achieve their potential. Through volunteering for Career Ready employers get the chance to develop their own management skills and find the next generation of talented employees.

From the private, public and voluntary sectors, we have over a decade of successful working relationships with everyone from small, independent businesses to multi-nationals - including a quarter of the FTSE 100.
