About the job

Job description

What is the Care Leaver Internship Scheme?
The Care Leavers Internship Scheme supports the cross-government Keep on Caring strategy. By signing up to the Care Leaver Covenant we show our commitment to helping care leavers to make the difficult transition from care to independence. The Care Leaver Internship Programme is one way we are putting this into practice.

This strongly aligns to our vision for a ‘Brilliant Civil Service’ and our overall ambition to be the most inclusive employer in the UK, which is set out in the Civil Service Workforce Plan and underpins the Civil Service Diversity & Inclusion Strategy.

Essential Criteria

In order to apply to the Care Leaver Internship Scheme you must have been eligible for a leaving care support package when you left care. In order to qualify for leaving care support, you must have been in care for a minimum of 13 weeks, some of which must have been after your 16th birthday’. You must also be aged between 18 and 30 by 1st November 2018 and have the right to work in the UK. If you apply for a Care Leaver Internship and are invited to interview, you will need to provide evidence that you meet the essential criteria by showing a letter from the local authority that provided your care prior to interview and appropriate ID.
