Graduates wanting to get some strong social care experience under their belt are being invited to apply for the National Skills Academy for Social Care’s Graduate Internship Programme.
The programme gives graduates the chance to spend six weeks leading a project in an adult social care organisation.
It’s paid too. Each intern gets £1,500 for the six weeks, except those in London who get £1,800.
The goal is to help prepare graduates for taking on a leadership role or entering the academy’s Graduate Management Training Programme.
The projects interns will get to do vary but, says the academy, they tend to involve work that organisations haven’t been able to do before due to capacity limitations.
Examples include running a community engagement project or putting together a bid for funding to help improve a care home.
But if you’re interested you need to hurry. The closing date for applying is Wednesday 21 May.
Those hoping to get an internship will need at least a 2:2 degree or equivalent.
The full information pack and application form can be accessed from the National Skills Academy for Social Care website.
