The Department for Education have launched this year’s Care Leaver Internship,.

The Scheme is listed under Department for Education Jobs, at Executive Officer (EO) grade and at Administrative Officer (AO) grade.

The scheme is available to care leavers aged 18-30 years, and provides ring-fenced opportunities, through which they can gain experience of working in central Government and build and strengthen their competences and key workplace skills.

The majority of internships will be London-based, but there are also internships available in: Aldershot, Andover, Birkenhead, Birmingham, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, Chelmsford, Coventry, Croydon, Darlington, Durham, Eastleigh, Leeds, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Nottingham, Peterborough, Reading, Sheffield, Warrington, Watford, and York.

There may be opportunity for AO roles to be considered for those candidates who narrowly miss the required standard for an EO role.
