Diagrama teams up with University of Kent for work placement scheme

05 Feb 2020
Employability Points scheme

Diagrama has joined the University of Kent’s renowned Employability Points scheme to offer undergraduates work placement opportunities throughout its services. Students at the university will be tasked with earning points towards eligibility for work experience, work shadowing and paid internship opportunities, for which they will be formally interviewed and selected, to support them with their job seeking skills.

This very successful scheme had over 8,600 students participate in 2018-2019 with over 850 paid internships, work experience opportunities, training and vouchers offered by local and national employers.

All Diagrama services will be taking part in the scheme, and our central office based in Chatham, Kent will also be offering placements with our HR and finance team. All placements will be organised during the summer break, between June and September.

David McGuire, Diagrama's Chief Executive said: “This is a great opportunity for us to introduce Diagrama to potential future employees, to give them a taste of how person-centred care can change lives for the better and to see how rewarding a career in the social care sector can be.”
