Graduates from the University of Wolverhampton will be
able to gain vital work experience thanks to a new £70,000
The Graduate Bursary Scheme allows West Midlands companies to
recruit a graduate for four weeks and receive funding. The aim is
to boost graduates’ work experience and also give companies the
chance to recruit an extra pair of hands on a project.
Funding has come from the Higher Education Funding Council for
England (HEFCE) in partnership with Graduate Advantage and it will
be managed by The Workplace at the University.
The scheme enables companies to recruit a graduate on a four
week placement and receive £250 per week as an allowance. The
company also contributes £50 per week, or £150 per week for a
public sector organisation.
Helene Turley, Employment Engagement Manager, said: “The aim of
the scheme is to help graduates gain work experience so they can go
on to secure further work.
“Not only will the graduate bring new skills to the organisation
but it will also enable the company to give a graduate valuable
work experience. The scheme is open to any company or organisation
in the West Midlands, so we hope our graduates will be able to gain
a wide range of experiences.”
