Work Ready

We have developed a wide variety of events, activities and programmes to complement learning within the school and to help prepare young people for the world of work.

These events and activities have been developed alongside businesses who want to help young people understand the skills employers are looking for and help them to develop the attitudes and capabilities to be successful when they leave school.

All of our activities are flexible and can be adapted to fit the school timetable, the needs of the curriculum and the requirements of the school.

We are able to recruit business volunteers to support our events in school which further enhances the learning of young people and their ability to relate what they are doing to the real world.

Employers who have supported us this year include:

Deloitte - Thames Water - Microsoft - Reading Football Club - Carillion - Interserve - Jacobs - Barclays - Verizon - Amec Foster Wheeler - AWE - Article 10 - Broad Street Mall - Cisco - CGI - Ericssonc - Fluor - Field Seymour Parkes - EY - The British Army - Grant Thornton - Visa - Guide Dogs - Kaplan - Marks & Spencers - Mitie - National Grid - Ooba Creative - Peter Brett - Reading Buses... to name a few!
