A new platform helps connect young people in education to the world of work. An innovative new HR company, Uptree, is connecting people in education (aged 16-20) with employers and professionals for events, work experience and apprenticeships. The new ‘professional network and careers platform’ gives young people the opportunity to make numerous professional connections before leaving school, which will prove an invaluable kick-start to their careers and leave them unburdened by crippling student debt.
