We are currently looking for employers who would like the opportunity to select and employ a Newcastle College University Centre graduate to work as a part-funded intern within their organisation for a 12-month period commencing July / August 2020.

Newcastle College University Centre will make a £10,000 contribution towards the intern’s salary for the 12-month internship. In exchange Newcastle College will require the intern to provide 10 days of support to Newcastle College University Centre to disseminate work experience to current students and support project research activities (one day per month over 10 months).
