This project has now been completed.
Throughout 2013/14 following the implementation of a funding grant from the Highland Council to raise awareness of Adopt an Intern, we were awarded further funding from the European Structural Funds to place 27 interns in businesses across the Scottish Highlands.
The purpose of this project was threefold:
- To help prevent the graduate brain drain from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland
- To help create a vibrant and accessible paid internship culture in this area
- To stimulate growth and stability in the local economy by providing businesses with access to highly skilled graduates
Having successfully completed this project, Adopt an Intern, continues to work with businesses and graduates from across the Highlands and Islands through our main services.
