Levelling up young talent
SMEs are the backbone of local communities and can be powerful drivers in levelling up young talent, with paid internships at local businesses proven to boost young people’s workplace skills and localised social mobility.
Yet many smaller businesses face resource barriers when it comes to creating workplace opportunities for young people.
That’s why we’re proud to be launching Internship Investment Funding for SMEs to help make this possible for them.
SME businesses can apply to utilise funding to host a young person on the Career Ready programme for a paid, four-week internship in July and August 2022.
The deadline to apply is Friday 27 May.
