Our year

Transforming the lives of young people

This year has seen Career Ready reach a record number of young people in Scotland, boosting their life chances – and social mobility more widely – by fulfilling their potential through experience and understanding of the world of work. Career Ready is the only schools programme where every young person has high-quality immersion in the world of work through their own mentor from the working world and a paid internship, allowing them to grow and develop their talents as well as discovering their career destiny.

The expansion of Career Ready in Scotland is testament to the transformational impact our programme has thanks to our growing network and partnership with Local Authorities, schools, employers, funders and volunteers which includes an increasing number of former Career Ready students. Behind this quality of impact and growth lie many stories of personal transformation which our case studies bring to life. Dedicated to nurturing young people, together we empower them to get the best possible chance for a successful and rewarding life and career as well as widening and diversifying employers’ pools of talent. Thank you.
