There are some fantastic opportunities available through the EP scheme this summer, with plenty to interest students across the Division of Arts and Humanities. The full Rewards Pack won’t be released until early March, but we’ve decided to treat students to a preview of just a few of the opportunities that are going to be available!

  • A 12-week paid Internship with DHA Planning – The chance to work within one of the planning teams, completing planning history searches, compiling consultation responses, drafting planning statements, monitoring decision notices.
  • A 6-week paid Internship with The Kent Mining Museum – The opportunity to undertake work in different teams at the museum, covering project work, education and learning, collections and operations.
  • A 12-day Work Experience with Lilford Gallery – The opportunity to undertake an extended work experience placement, which will include art curating, research into artists, sales training, working with current artists and curating for events.
  • A 2-week Work Experience with Digitom – An opportunity to shadow the production team, working across various branded content films and potentially animation projects. This will involve planning productions, filming on location and post-production editing.
  • Company Experience Day at Kent County Council – The chance to spend a day focussed on Governance, Law and Democracy at the Kent County Council Offices.

There is still plenty of time to earn more points – the deadline for logging points is Monday 13th March. Find out how to join the scheme and earn points from co-curricular activities on the EP Website. Don’t forget, you can log any activities that you have done since starting your studies at Kent.

You need 200 points to apply for an internship, 150 points for work experience, 100 points for work shadowing opportunities and 75 points for experience days.

Don’t take our word for how amazing these opportunities are – take the words of some EP alumni from last year:

“The scheme gives you confidence and makes you feel more settled about your future – it’s worthwhile and I would definitely encourage getting involved” – Harvey Blazquez, EP intern at Medway Council

“This experience has not only bolstered my learning, but has really given me the confidence that I am right in my choice of career path… It’s something that I am finding more and more enjoyment in” – Buauna Ball, EP placement at Digitom

So, what are you waiting for? Get earning your points ready to make those applications from the 14th March! Best of luck to you all!
