Kick-start your career with Burnley College
Burnley College's hugely successful Internship programme equips college leavers, current university students and recent graduates with the skills and experience to make the first step into their dream career. Each year we look for Interns with the energy and enthusiasm to learn and explore new things and the drive to prove themselves in their chosen career path, who will bring a fresh perspective, innovative solutions and the ability to effectively utilise the latest working practices and technologies, as gained during time spent in their chosen field of study.
Burnley College provides first-class Further and University Education, Apprenticeships, Business Training and Adult Learning programmes, in the heart of Pennine Lancashire. We are one of Burnley's largest employers, with staff who genuinely value and support one another and speak passionately about the College. Expectations of all staff are high; we work hard and we have fun doing it. In return we offer a wealth of staff benefits, not least our immense support and development opportunities.
Interns from our previous programmes have gone on to full-time work in a variety of roles across the country, have returned to full-time study, or, depending on their success, have even been offered a permanent role at Burnley College. Here's what two of our Interns have said about their experience at Burney College:
"I immediately felt welcome and part of the team. My opinions have been valued and I have been given responsibilities to take ownership of; allowing me to develop many vital skills. Burnley College has provided me with many opportunities on top of my job role, including my Level 2 and 3 Fitness qualifications, which I can take with me and continue to use at University. I have absolutely loved my time here and would recommend this internship to anyone looking to enhance their professional skills." Freya Bourne - Sports Science Intern
"In the short time I have been working at Burnley College, I have worked on a wide variety of influential projects that will benefit my future and career exceptionally. Having the opportunity to put my degree knowledge into practice and further enhance my skills through challenging me and expanding my understanding has aided my career in ways that the classroom never could. " Carly Nuttall - Business Intelligence Intern
