Why Change 100 is a great programme

Posted by Thomas Ron, 17/02/2014

Hello all

I am writing to talk about this excellent programme called Change 100 which is being promoted in York.

Change 100 is an internship programme that offers disabled students a paid internship at major companies like Barclay's Bank over the summer.  Over this internship students will get a mentor and good experience of the workplace for the three months that they are in the job.  After the job is over the programme will remain in contact with the student and possibly even offer them a full-time job after graduation.

This allows for students to have the networks they often need to succeed in the workplace and will help them understand the mysteries and tailor their CVs to be much better.

Careers have information for anyone who wishes to be part of this excellent programme and please get in contact with them if you are curious
