Do you want to be part of a new and exciting pilot programme? Be part of the National Union of Students’ new programme – Placements for Good – and work with university level students and increase capacity to progress sustainability.
The NUS is currently seeking organisations and businesses who want to empower students from all backgrounds to innovate and progress sustainability through meaningful work placements. Join a network of organisations working to enhance partnership working with universities whilst exploring potential to make a positive impact.
In return, the NUS will:
- Take away the hassle of recruitment and ensure you are partnered with talented and highly motivated students
- Support you and your placement student before (with pre-placement training), during and after the placement to make this a valuable opportunity for all
- Work with you to design a programme of work that supports your organisation’s core business as well as increasing your capacity to progress the sustainability (environmental and ethical) impacts of your work
In 2019, there are a limited number of universities and colleges taking part in the South, South West and South Wales. During this pilot year, placement partnerships are only open to students from participating institutions to ensure we can provide high quality support and development opportunities.
