Happy New Year from King's Internships!

We're excited to be launching our new suite of programming this spring, focusing on supporting undergraduate students with their career decision-making and under-represented groups with the confidence to continue their career exploration.

All of these programmes are supported by a comprehensive suite of digital careers education which we've been building and developing over the last few months and we're looking forward to working with employers to provide meaningful work experience - both virtual and physical across 2021.

King's Careers & Employability are also delighted to be partnering with Practera in delivery of our new Insights Programme which will sit as a new alternative to our broader innovative internship programming, supporting career decision-making for undergraduate students and PhD candidates across the institution.

Practera has demonstrated itself as an industry leader across Australia and other key geographies and we are delighted to help them launch in the United Kingdom in 2020. The platform allows us to develop, design and implement high-quality virtual meaningful work projects for our students, working alongside industry at scale to build unique experiences in these challenging times. We are excited about what we can achieve in 2021 through group projects targeted at final year undergraduate students and those from under-represented groups.

Andrew Wright, Head of Employer Engagement

We’re proud to be partnering with a leading Careers Service like King’s College, and delighted to be supporting their vision to build success for students, graduates, staff and employers across King's College London.

Beau Leese, Practera Co-Founder & Co-CEO

Please do get in touch with us to explore how your organisation might seek to work with us in these aspirations over the coming year.
