Celebrating the Step-Up Programme
Harris HR were delighted to attend an afternoon tea event to celebrate the STEP-UP Programme, an internship and training programme for SMEs, hosted by the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex.
The Programme commenced in the autumn of 2020 and ran for a year. During that time Harris HR delivered specialist master classes for participating SME’s covering ‘Internship On-boarding’.
Theresa Pruvost says, "We have loved being involved in this fantastic programme that offered SME’s in the local area fully funded graduate internships."
"Participants said that our master classes provided clear useful advice on all things to cover while on-boarding an intern as well as giving them an opportunity to interact with other likeminded SME Managers.
"At last week’s event we heard about the key successes of the STEP-UP Programme. Students commented on how the Programme had given them valuable insights into what kind of qualities were needed to potentially be hired after university and two interns shared their experience of what the Programme had meant to them and how their internship had led on to permanent employment.
