We believe that every young person should have the skills, confidence and opportunity to enjoy the rewarding future their talent deserves.
That’s why we work across the UK to connect young, undiscovered talent with employers through a range of programmes. By providing young people with key employability skills, new-found confidence and workplace experiences, we unlock talent, add value to employers, and level the playing field.
Last year, our network 5,000 volunteers from 1,000 employers helped to transform the lives of 69,000 young people in 400+ schools & colleges through the following activities:
– Paid internships
– Workplace visits
– Careers in the Curriculum
98% of our young people go onto positive destinations after leaving our programme, with 72% of employers saying they would hire their Career Ready internhttp://www.careerready.org.uk
