Internship Opportunities

What is Potential Plus UK’s Internship Programme?


Potential Plus UK supports thousands of more able children and young people each year and our internship Programme is another way of providing exciting opportunities for our young graduates or gap year students.

We provide a brilliant opportunity for you to work for a charity, gain new skills, meet new people and be able to put the valuable experience and training you gain on your CV to make you stand out from the other candidates when you apply for a job in the future.

It is also a chance to put something back into society in an area of charity work which is very rewarding, working with children and their families. You never know, it may even help to shape your future career choices!

What we offer


Although as a charity we can only afford to pay travel and subsistence and any training expenses, we believe we have a great deal to offer including:

  • Opportunities which match your skills, expertise and interest
  • The chance to gain experience right at the sharp end.
  • Opportunities to help stretch and challenge you.

What we are looking for


We are looking for the best, most passionate students who really believe in supporting children with high learning potential and want to make a real difference.

We take on up to three students a year and competition is often high. You will see why when you look at what some of our interns have achieved:

  • Researched and wrote a report on gifted children in care
  • Researched and wrote a report on gifted children in the Criminal Justice System
  • Researched and wrote a publication about gifted children and mental health issues
  • Produced packs in science and maths for younger children
  • Coordinated our Youth Board
  • Wrote Advice Sheets for the Children’s area of the website

All of the work is essential to the organisation but is not something we could afford to do without our interns.

Are you up to the challenge?

Do you want to spend your summer or gap year doing something really useful?

Apply for our Internship programme today.
