There has been a lot of talk in the press of a government-backed “graduate internship” scheme, but until today, precious little detail, other than to throw around big names like Microsoft. However, some initial details have now been released, aiming at recruiting employers to the scheme, before they start to publicise it to graduates.
It’s still not clear whether recent postgraduates will be included. No details of eligibility have been given, so it may not help if you’ve nothing yet lined up after your postgrad course, but we’ll keep an eye on it and let you know when it becomes clearer.
In the meantime, have a look at my colleague, Holly’s post on the Graduate blog, giving you the latest that we do know.
