Our work with schools

Raise your students’ career confidence

School

Today’s school leavers face a plethora of choices. Not every school has the resources to help each student find the way to their dream career. Uptree can help your students reach their full potential.

Uptree was founded by teachers to help talented young people connect to professional networks and career pathways while still at school.

We offer a free careers programme for students aged 16-19 to help them get started on the road to professional success. Through Uptree, students can:

  • Access free online courses and support for career development
  • Broaden their knowledge of career routes
  • Meet with leading employers
  • Access unique opportunities and events, including apprenticeships and work experience

Why work with us

Free support

We’re funded by our industry partners, with the aim to support young people from diverse or low income backgrounds across the UK.

Levelling the playing field

We believe that every young person should have access and opportunity to progress their career based on their talent and potential, not their connections or background. We can provide the support your students need to thrive in their future careers.

Achieving careers education goals

The support we provide is a rounded curriculum, helping schools to meet the eight Gatsby Benchmarks (England) and Careers Education Standard (Scotland).

Minimum hassle

We understand how stretched today’s schools are. Let us do the heavy lifting. We work flexibly and our free content is designed around teachers’ needs.

Helping students to aim higher

Your students will discover fresh opportunities and learn more about the many exciting career pathways open to them. The sky's the limit.

  • Our students now have a better idea of what paths they want to take in the future. They got an insight into different jobs that they had never even heard of before. Anne Sparkes, Assistant Principal, Sacred Heart Catholic School
  • [Our son] had seen a world that he hadn’t experienced before, his eyes had been opened and it was all thanks to you at Uptree. You’ve inspired our son by giving him hope and direction. Parents, Tim and Natalie
  • I’ve had really brilliant feedback from my students about all the events. I actually noticed it was one of our alumni talking about his experience as a Deloitte apprentice at one of the events, which was brilliant! Careers Advisor, Morpeth School

Allow your students to explore their options at FuturesUP

This October we're hosting our flagship careers event FuturesUP. Hosted in person for the first time in over 2 years, students will be able to meet with professionals, hear inspiring talks and learn more about careers in STEM, law, creative industries and more.
