Keith Grammar School is fortunate to be able to offer the opportunity to some of our current S4 pupils to become Career Ready Students over their S5 and S6.
Career Ready UK, is a business led charity, supporting a movement of employers and schools working together to help raise the aspirations of 16 to 19 year olds and bridge the gap between education and work by giving them access to real experience of the world of work. Together we provide an awareness of business that broadens young people’s horizons and helps them decide whether to opt for employment, work-based learning (such as apprenticeships or school leaver programmes) or higher education.
Selected students follow a programme of mentoring, masterclasses, workplace visits and a four week paid internship.
S4 pupils have been informed about this opportunity in PSE and those meeting the selection criteria who are interested have taken a letter home about an information evening on Tuesday 26th March. If your child has not taken home a letter and you would like them to apply for this opportunity please contact their Guidance Teacher.
To be eligible to apply for this programme students must meet the following criteria:
- Studying between one and three Highers in S5
- Decent grades in National 4/5 qualifications
- Planning to stay in school until the end of S6
- Available for the minimum four consecutive week paid internship that starts in the last week of summer term of S5 and continues into the school holidays.
