Oxford University run micro-internships for their students – they are short-term work-experience placements aimed at developing professional skills. ACC has participated in Oxford University’s micro-internship programme several times –
Oxford University are keen for us to offer regular placements to students to increase their employability in the green sector. Anne and Caroline are hosting the latest micro-internship; two students are spending 5 days in December devising a questionnaire for businesses. They will ask how people travel to work in Abingdon, and consider ways to reduce the use of cars. They will write a report of their findings which will be useful in construction of Abingdon’s neighbourhood plan.
