Having survived Blue Monday, perhaps your thoughts have turned to summer – holidays, sunshine, socialising and coming out of hibernation! But inn the Placements team, we’ve turned our attention to the launch of the Bath Spa University Summer Placement Scheme.
Why would you want to spend your summer doing a placement/internship?
- Allows you to develop specific industry skills
- Work in or learn about a specific profession or sector where you will undertake a role with real responsibility or changes
- Gain experience that you can add to your CV and later help you land that graduate job
- Build new relationships and wider networks
- Get paid!
For those of you who haven’t heard of this scheme yet, we work with a wide variety of local businesses to provide paid 3 month opportunities for second- and third-year Bath Spa students. Placements and internships will be advertised on My Career from the end of February, with start dates of May-July.
Alternatively, if you have already arranged your own local placement/internship for the summer why don’t you contact us to see if we can support this with our funding? We provide £1,500 towards the cost of the three months and the employer must make this up to reach at least National Minimum Wage.
If you’re interested in hearing more about the opportunities as they come in, please complete the short form here. Those that sign up by the 10th February will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Sainsbury’s voucher!
For any support with finding placements/internships please contact the team on Placements@bathspa.ac.uk / 01225 876638 or come along to the Placements Drop In (1pm-2pm) every Tuesday and Thursday in Stewards Lodge.
