Since the launch of our partnership, Career Ready and The Bupa Foundation have worked together to support young people through paid internships, mentoring, skills masterclasses, career insight sessions, and workplace visits.
This year, 39 Bupa employees have become mentors providing one-to-one support for sixth-form students – while supporting them to apply for internships, University degrees and entry-level job roles. And after seeing the impact of hosting three interns in 2021, Bupa has significantly scaled up its internship programme for 2022. This summer, 37 students on the Career Ready programme will gain vital, paid work experience.
In addition, thanks to the support of The Bupa Foundation, we launched an internship investment initiative to boost social mobility and diversity in the third sector.
