Lend your support to students to help improve their employability prospects.

We are now accepting staff applications for the next round of the Accelerate Your Career programme, which will be run from Tuesday 28 May to Friday, 14 June 2019.

Accelerate Your Career is the University’s student internship scheme. It offers final-year students the opportunity to take part in meaningful work experience. We’re eager to find staff open to a student working full-time on a meaningful project over a three-week period (based on 35 hours a week) .

The programme gives students the chance to gain direct experience. It's an opportunity for them to develop their employability skills in areas such as written and verbal communication, problem solving, project management, meeting deadlines, prioritisation, research, and using IT professionally. It offers a unique benefit for staff, too, who will benefit from an injection of skills, energy and ideas – at no cost!

The scheme is funded by the Career Development Service.

Closing date for applications is Friday 12 April 2019.

Please contact lara.burton@le.ac.uk or call 0116 223 1775.
