Supporting businesses to engage with education across Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire

Life Ready Work Ready is supporting businesses to engage with education, encouraging young people to become work ready.

Life Ready Work Ready works in partnership with schools and businesses to help young people fulfil their potential and to engage and inspire young people to make positive transitions into education, employment and training.

Through mentoring, enterprise challenges, skills development initiatives and work experience, the young people we work with are provided with opportunities to develop the key skills employers are looking for. Information, advice and guidance ensures young people, employers, parents and schools are offered professional, impartial, client-centred careers information whilst being given expert, up to date knowledge and an understanding of the opportunities available through delivering a service which enables young people to make well informed and realistic decisions.

The purpose of the programme is not only preparing young people for a work environment but also the demands and expectations that come with this. It is an opportunity for employers to inspire young people to consider their workplace as a future career.
