DPS Partner with Career Ready

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Career Ready, a UK-wide social mobility charity, empowering young minds for success in work and life. As part of this transformative 18-month program, students in S5 and S6 will embark on a journey that includes a four-week paid internship, mentorship, and enriching masterclasses.

Melanie Houston & Corrie Lironi have recently just met their mentees and are excited to get going:

“I’m excited to go on this 18-month journey with my mentee Gemma. The Career Ready program is a fantastic opportunity for these young ones, providing a real insight into the world of work. I hope this program opens doors of opportunity and leads to many success stories.” – Melanie Houston

“I am looking forward to the next 18 months and working with Gracie-lee. I think Career Ready is a fantastic opportunity for young people for them to see what it is like in the working world and also have some insight into what career route they would like to take. I know when I was in high school I was unsure of what I wanted to do when I left, I didn’t want to go to university but wasn’t sure what career path I wanted to take. I think because I was in that same position, I would like to help Gracie-lee figure that out as well.” – Corrie Lironi

Here’s a glimpse of what the Career Ready Program offers:

🌟 Four-week paid internship in June/July 2024

🌟 Personal mentorship, 90 mins/month from October S5 to April S6

🌟 Engaging masterclasses and workplace visits

🌟 Alumni network for ongoing support

We look forward to helping to make a positive impact on young lives and building a network that transcends boundaries. Together, let’s shape a future where every young person, regardless of background, progresses to a positive post-school destination.
