Universities are increasingly judged on how well they compete in the employment market, including how effectively they prepare their students for the transition from university studies to the workplace.
The advantage BeReady offers your students in securing a job, through our employability skills programme for universities, can act as a selling point for your prospective candidates and a distinct recruitment boost.
In addition, working with us to forge relationships with schools and sixth form colleges creates a high-quality applicant pipeline. This will help you achieve local school engagement and recruitment objectives in Widening Participation, providing access to young people from all backgrounds.
As a BeReady university partner you will be able to develop exclusive links with schools, colleges and pupils in your target areas.
How we can help drive your school engagement
As a BeReady university partner you can sponsor bespoke employability skills websites that school pupils will benefit from every day. Designed to align perfectly with the school curriculum, these websites deliver CPD accredited training as an invaluable addition to each school’s employability provision.
On your partner schools’ websites you’ll have your university logo on every page. You’ll also have a whole page devoted to your university on which you can publish your own pupil-focused content.
Closer ties, greater opportunities
With our support, you’ll be able to give the next generation valuable advice on future career choices and study paths.

Students will gain a warm association with your university, plus the key skills and knowledge needed to succeed in life beyond school and sixth form college. You’ll gain access to future talent and applicants, as well meeting your local school engagement and WP goals.
