Students at Hazelwood Integrated College have successfully completed the school’s inaugural internship programme, which is run in partnership with major employers and which represents a first in Northern Ireland.
Last Wednesday (21 March) 20 post-16 students gave presentations on their work projects to an invited audience which included representatives of the business and education sectors alongside media, college governors and staff.
The six-month, unpaid internship programme was co-founded by Hazelwood IC and businesses Deloitte, Clayton Hotel, O’Hare and McGovern and the Now Group.
Commenting on the success of the scheme’s first year, Hazelwood IC Principal Kathleen O’Hare said
“Hazelwood’s Internship Programme – unique in Northern Ireland – has provided these students with invaluable experience, offering a hands-on opportunity to work in their desired field and allowing them to identify how their course of study applies to the real world…our sincere thanks go to the Business Founders.”
