Job Description

The Turing Scheme is a UK-wide programme that provides funding for international placements across the world. Successful candidates get opportunities to develop skills, boost confidence levels, and improve employability prospects.

  • 12  week work placement
  • Return flights
  • Accommodation
  • £85 weekly living allowance
  • Fully comprehensive Health and Travel insurance
  • An in-country language course
  • Awards contributing to a relevant Level 3 qualification

We work with a network of companies in each location that specialise in a wide range of industries. No matter which career you want to pursue, we are making sure you will get invaluable experience. For all placements, we require previous experience or a qualification in the chosen sector. Whilst participants will work within a team, supervised by a company mentor, and it is essential that a host company can see that you already have some skills to offer them from your application.
