Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Developing a virtual internship programme to enhance the career outcomes of part-time students

Significant emphasis is placed by employers on the importance of graduates gaining relevant work experience to supplement their degree. For full-time students this typically takes the form of an internship often gained through a sandwich year placement. Part-time students however are usually excluded from benefiting from these opportunities due to additional barriers faced through their personal circumstances. This session will outline how The Open University is establishing a virtual internships project to enable part-time students to access more flexible work experience opportunities and offer the opportunity for other institutions to benefit from resources being developed as part of it.
