General Internship
About the placement/internship

Why did you decide to do a placement/internship?

As I have never had much work experience, I felt working for a charity I would gain invaluable experience.

How did you find your placement/internship?

Application process

This was a telephone conversation followed by an interview which was more like an informal chat.

What made you choose this organisation for your placement/internship?

I loved the work they do to help people back into the society which is really important to me.

Main responsibilities

I shadowed the director a lot, I took notes, researched a lot of projects and delivered some presentations about going into university.

Typical day

In the morning I would work with children and in the afternoon I would go with the directors to schools to deliver presentations. I also would work with the operations team, seeing the ins and out how a charity is run.

What did I enjoy about my placement/internship?

Working with the children. Although they were challenging, I felt like I learnt a lot.

Challenging aspects

Working with the difficult children as getting them to listen at times was tough. Also having to deliver presentations was also challenging.

Did you use any skills learned from your course?

Research skills which I used for funding.
