28 February 2024 (SCILT/CISS)

Are you currently in S5? 

Do you love languages? 

Do you enjoy creating and sharing content on social media? 

Would you like to work with other young people and enhance your CV? 

Well, this role might be for you! 

We are inviting committed, dynamic young people to apply for our year-long digital internship programme.  This would see you using social media regularly and collaborating effectively with a team to demonstrate your love of languages and where they can take you.  This is an excellent opportunity to experience working with digital professionals in a languages environment and enhance your final year at school. 

Please note that interns will be home-based and the opportunity is open to young people across the country. This is an unpaid internship. Interns are expected to commit two to four hours per week for one academic year to the project (June – May). Successful applicants must attend a training day on Friday 7 June 2024. This will be held in Glasgow and travel expenses from outside Glasgow will be covered. Those who cannot attend this day will not be allowed to proceed onto the programme.

Wondering whether to apply?

Here’s what some of our previous interns have said about the experience: 

“The highlight was getting to work with other people I hadn't met before (working on my teambuilding and communication skills), getting to represent a national organisation, creating our own content and deciding ourselves how we wanted to run our social media accounts.” 

“I loved producing high quality content and collaborating with the other interns. It was really exciting later on in the year when we started to get more interaction on our channels.” 

“Meeting new people who share my same passion for languages and coming together to create something valuable was a high point for me.”
