Student of the Year

We are looking for students who can inspire other to consider STEM careers with their stories.
Logistics Student of the Year
Our Logistics Student of the Year Award supported by PD Ports recognises the students who have made the most progress towards a career in the logistics profession during and thanks to the Career Ready programme. We are looking for students who can inspire others to consider logistics careers with their stories.
Mentor of the Year
Our Mentor of the Year Award supported by Standard Life Aberdeen recognises the mentors in England, Wales and Northern Ireland who have gone above and beyond the requirements of the role to support their students throughout the Career Ready journey. We know a mentoring relationship can be one of the most transformational elements of the programme and this award is our students' chance to say thank you.

A new award for 2020, our School of the Year Award supported by Aviva recognises a school or college, its staff and the Career Ready Coordinator that have excelled in the running of a Career Ready programme or activities, going above and beyond to act as ambassadors for employer engagement, good careers guidance and student success.
