Junior Internship Programme

What is the Junior Internship Programme, who can apply  and how will I benefit?
Research has proven that employers working with students during their studies has a positive impact on their development and progress. The Junior Internship Programme is a 2-year programme available to Year 12 and 13 students from Worcester Sixth Form College and Heart of Worcestershire colleges giving them a valuable opportunity to be matched with an employer from whom they will receive monthly mentoring and a 2-weeks of work experience for each year of the programme (potentially 4 weeks in total).

Students from Worcestershire Sixth Form College and Heart of Worcestershire College are invited to apply online via the Junior Internship Programme sign up form on the WLEP website by 15th November 2019. Students will then be invited to the ‘speed interviewing’ event on Thursday 5th December to be held at Worcester Bosch at 3.30pm until 6.30pm. Students will then commence the programme with their matched employer from January 2020.

Recruitment is currently underway for a 2nd cohort of Junior Interns during the Autumn term.
