Twelve of our Year 12 cohort have started this national programme.
To kick start the programme students went to The Dominion Theatre in London to attend the Career Ready launch event called ‘A Capital Experience’. They were with hundreds of other young people from England, Wales, and Northern Ireland (2,000 approx.) They heard from the CEO of Career Ready and two alumni students about their experience on the programme. They also went to a workplace visit at the London AIG head office, where they had lunch and a session on money management and risk insurance. It was such a fantastic and fulfilling experience for all involved.
And most importantly, the benefits of being on the programme is having an employer mentor, employability master classes, workplace visits, 4-week paid internships, university residential visits, and so much more that will support their wellbeing and the development of their future prospects.
