How they work
Once you gain a place on the programme, you will be matched with a employer mentor, attend masterclasses and have a chance to go on a summer internships which are paid and last a minimum of four weeks to maximise the benefits.
We work closely with our partner employers to provide them with the resources, support, and guidance needed to ensure that the internship works for students and the host organisation.
WKC have partnered with Investment 20/20 to help learners explore careers opportunities in the investment banking world.
The Investment 20/20 scheme offers jobs across all of the specialist areas in the investment industry depending on where your interests and skills are.
This year, Manuela from BTEC L3 Business was part of the Investment 20/20 college programme, where she got to attend employer masterclasses and work shadow at top investment banks.
