Awards

At Career Ready we are proud to celebrate the achievements of our students, volunteers, employer partners and schools. Every year we offer a number of awards that recognise individuals who demonstrate outstanding commitment to our programme. 

The 2019 awards

For 2019, we will be presenting regional and national awards across six categories including a new award for an outstanding student who have been working with our employer supporters in the logistics industry.

Nominations - please note that only certain people are eligible to nominate for each award, but all nominations must be submitted by no later than Monday 18 February 2019.

The award winners will be announced at our annual awards celebration ceremony in London in April 2019.
