Since 2009 Prior Pursglove has been the only college in the Tees Valley to be a part of the 16-18 UK Career Academy network, now known as Career Ready, an exciting scheme designed to give students on advanced level courses in business and finance additional experiences to help them with their future career.
Career Ready is not a qualification in itself but runs alongside the BTEC Personal Business and Finance qualification and any other business discipline of your choice. To earn a place on this programme you will need to demonstrate to us that you have the drive to succeed and the willingness to stretch your potential. In return, you will be provided with visits, personal business mentoring and a fully paid internship/work placement with one of our partner organisations, which include Yorkshire Bank, Santander and the Darlington Building Society. Not only will you develop your theoretical business and finance knowledge, you will also gain a real insight into the way businesses operate in the real world.
Career Ready at Prior is an invaluable opportunity for those wishing to enter the world of business and business finance. Graduates from the programme have secured full time employment, Apprenticeships and university places.
