A UK-wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people.
We are one of the employees in Midlothian supporting Career Ready - a UK wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people.
The scheme runs over two years, with mentors and mentees meeting twice a term, and includes a 4-week paid internship at the end of year 1. The aim is to give students from lower income families the confidence, skills and networks to achieve their potential.
In 2016 the Easter Bush Campus hosted three Career Ready mentees, with more joining us in 2017.
Career Ready presents a real opportunity to make an enormous difference to the future career aspirations of a young person. Quite a responsibility for mentors who take part, but it also affords them with a personal development opportunity. Together you’ll both end up getting a great deal out of the programme.
