Life Beyond the Sixth Form

Career Ready is an amazing opportunity, putting students like you directly in touch with employers from all areas of work. Whatever you want to do with your life, Career Ready can give you the skills you need to get the career you want.

If you’re 16-19 years old we offer a structured programme of masterclasses, workplace visits and mentoring that fit around your current studies, including a 4-6 week summer internship (many of them paid). Forget traditional ‘work experience’, this is your chance to become a valued team member, put the skills you’ve learned into practice and find out what work’s really all about.

Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School has been running a successful Career Ready academy over a decade, and over 96 students have graduated through the programme. We have established links from every kind of organisation – from the NHS to multinationals, including local employers including Havering LA and Neopost.

As a Career Ready student you will receive:
A mentor to act as a guide, sounding board and critical friend
Practical advice on CVs and applications
The chance to develop employability skills, social skills and confidence/self-esteem through regular contact with working people and work places
An increased awareness of jobs and career possibilities
