Prepare for the world of work

Internships

Are you thinking about developing your talent pipeline?

Career Academies UK gives you access to ambitious, diverse young people and a chance to develop the skills of your employees, while underpinning your CSR and recruitment agendas.

We work with 16-19 year old students with little or no background of higher education, who lack the networks and role models of their wealthier peers. We give them the confidence and opportunity to engage with employers to increase their chances of securing a good job or place at university.

The internship comes in the middle of a two year programme of mentoring, masterclasses and employer visits, all aimed at preparing them for the workplace.

They are determined, able and ambitious students, ready to apply their learning and make a valid contribution to an employer - to you.

Providing an internship is easier than you think. At Career Academies UK we have over ten years' experience of making this work. More than 460 companies across the UK gave internships to Career Academy students last year. We provide everything you need to make the placement rewarding for both parties. Our toolkit offers job descriptions, guidance for supervisors and materials for students.
