Our impact

In 2019, we helped 69,000 young people, from 400 schools and colleges across the UK, develop the skills, confidence, and experience needed to kick-start a rewarding future - all made possible by the inspiring support of our network of 5,000 volunteers from more than 1,000 employers large and small.



This year has seen Career Ready reach a record 69,000 young people across the UK, boosting their life chances and social mobility more widely. We welcomed 100 new partner schools in eleven areas of disadvantage. Behind those numbers lie moving stories of personal transformation which our case studies bring to life. 

Our model of delivering essential skills through employer engagement with schools is now mainstream government policy – backed up by hard evidence.

We are on track to exceed our target of reaching 90,000 young people by 2021, thanks to our expanding network of employers, funders and volunteers including a growing number of former Career Ready students.
