The Career Ready Programme

If you want to give yourself a real advantage over your peers then the Career Ready Programme is the perfect vehicle

The Career Ready Programme delivers a unique opportunity of employer engagement and enhancement of a student's CV. It enables students to see beyond their current aspirations and gives them a desire to succeed in the world. Nationally, less than 1% of students get the opportunity of having a place on a Career Ready Programme. We are delighted to announce that we are the only sixth form that delivers the Career Ready programme in this area. The nearest centre is in Coventry.


This programme allows students to gain a competitive advantage when applying for university, employment or an apprenticeship. We have built strong relationships with many employers who all say that they are impressed with the calibre of the students that they have worked with. So much so, Virgin Trains have asked for two of our students to apply to their new undergraduate training scheme. Mazars have also welcomed two students in recent years on to their prestigious school leaver apprenticeship. This is some achievement for our Career Ready students and is proof that this programme puts the students in the shop window for employers.


If you want to give yourself a real advantage over your peers, then the Career Ready Programme is the perfect vehicle as it will develop your confidence, maximise your ability and prove that you can be a success in the world.


Here are a few examples of business that we have developed long-standing relationships with and help us in delivering the key aspects of the programme. For more information, please contact Oliver Harris on oharris@ellowes.dudley.sch.uk, visit www.careerready.org.uk or access the YouTube videos below.
