UWE Internships Celebration

Earlier this week the UWE Careers team held a get together aimed at staff involved in the UWE Internships Scheme to celebrate in its success. The idea of this event was to bring people together, thank them for supporting the scheme, and give an insight in to the effect the scheme had on Graduates and Employers in the region.

With the launch of a new Internship scheme for 2010/11, this time funded by UWE, the event gave staff a chance to reflect on the achievements of the last project and look to the next scheme with enthusiasm.

Jennie from ‘Hop til u Drop’ and Mike from ‘Happy City’ with their Interns Aiden (Hop til U drop) and Majid (Happy City) spoke with passion about the work they were doing and really brought to life what a dramatic impact the scheme has had. It was fantastic to hear Employers talking so positively about the Interns they had taken on and hear about the ways they had been able to develop their organisations. The Interns, who have both now been employed full time by their employers, were impressed with the quality of the positions and the responsibility and trust they had been given in their work.

Vice Chancellor Steve West reflected on the successes of the Internship Scheme by celebrating the achievements of UWE and what it is able to accomplish for its Students and Graduates.

This celebration seemed a great way to head in to a new scheme and we hope that staff were left excited and confident about where the project could potentially lead and the positive ways this will help our Graduates in the current climate.

Truly a fanastic event and a fitting tribute to the amazing work being carried out across the region thanks to the scheme, employers and graduates!
