In 2019, Keele introduced the first Sustainability Internship, offering a student the opportunity to work alongside the Education for Sustainability team and help support projects and engage students and staff with sustainability on campus. At the end of 2019, two new Sustainable Projects Intern roles were created, enabling more students to work with the EfS Team and learn how to implement sustainability, support student-led projects, and take a lead on embedding sustainable food and sustainable living practices across the campus and Keele community.
By offering experiential learning opportunities through these paid internships, student interns are able to apply knowledge learned within their degree programmes with real-world experience and contexts within the university setting. Student interns are able to work with a wide range of staff and students across the university, helping increase the reach and impact of our work. On top of this, interns are able to develop a wide range of skills, helping develop their employability, whilst helping enhance and increase the potential of our sustainability projects.
