What is Junior to Giant?
A programme that bridges the theory of education with the reality of profession. A space where the future has a voice and a seat at the table to co-create a world that our “Juniors” understand and add value to. A world where our Juniors become Giants.
The program creates a framework to address the gaps in education so that students leave having had first-hand practical experience in different professions. Students apply and interview for a placement on the programme which includes enrichment workshops, masterclasses, board meetings as well as working in different areas of the organisation and or stakeholder opportunities. This done whilst under the guidance and mentorship of professionals and mentors. Once the 3-month process is completed the student would have accomplished a time of thorough application and training and would be ready to offer themselves for the position of intern in our organisation or in one of our external placements.
This is a Full-time programme and interns are based at The Bridge, Sandown Business Square; a co-shared office space that simulates a working environment that the interns can apply themselves. The interns are required to be on duty from 07h30-16h30, Monday-Friday, unless arranged otherwise.

Student accountability and graduation
During the course of the programme we ask that the Interns document their learning and experience in order to create a portfolio of evidence that will be presented towards the end of the programme. If the intern is able to share sufficient evidence and data on their learnings and experience during the programme, they would be eligible to graduate. We close each programme with a graduation ceremony.
