What To Expect
The overarching philosophy of the program is to give participants the freedom to define their own experience and to progress independently, both personally and professionally, within a framework that provides comprehensive support and guidance.
. Upon enrolling on to the program you will be assigned an Internship Adviser who will work with you to ascertain your immediate and longer-term career aspirations and guide you through the internship selection and pre-arrival processes.
. A welcome induction and orientation will take place during the opening weekend of the program, giving you the opportunity meet the rest of the program intake, receive practical guidance regarding your internship and the wider program from your Group Mentor and settle in before you begin your internship placement.
You will attend your internship placement Monday to Friday for the duration of the program. A Buddy and Mentor – a junior and senior delegate at your internship company – will be on hand to support you throughout your internship placement.
For the wider aspects of the program, such as the weekly career seminars and the charity fundraising challenge, you will be separated into smaller sub-groups within the program intake. Each sub-group will be assigned a Group Mentor – a successful local professional from a leading firm in your chosen industry – who will help to guide you through the wider aspects of the program.
The regular social events and weekend excursions are integral to the program. They serve as a medium to build lasting friendships with your peers and to enhance your experience of your chosen city.
