In the current economic climate, graduates are having more and more difficulty beginning their careers. Experience in one's chosen field is now necessary in order to find even an unpaid internship with many companies. We at UCS are committed to helping students to succeed beyond their school days, so we'd like to connect with our Old Gowers who might be interested in bringing a current UCS pupil into their workplace.
Ideally, the students will be provided with a specific project that will enable them to develop workplace skills, including leadership, teamwork, working to deadlines and problem solving. If this is not feasible, then any sort of work shadowing lasting between one week and two months will be beneficial. The idea is to provide students with an insight into the field, as well as something to talk about in an internship interview.
