internshipInternships in Purple Stone Academy

At Purple Stone Academy we offer professional work experience in our company.

A professional internship provides unpaid work experience in an English speaking environment in the same field of study as the candidate’s studies.

Work experience placements are generally available in marketing, market research, graphic design, product development, and office work.

An internship can be taken in combination with an English language course at our school in East London, or, for students with excellent English language skills, on its own.

There is a minimum level of English of Intermediate level required in order to be able to be given this opportunity.
Most internships will last minimum 3 months, Monday to Friday, for 5 hours a day, but in exceptional circumstances, shorter periods can be arranged.

During the period of work experience, interns may be given a variety of tasks of different kinds – ranging from challenging project work to routine administrative tasks such as publishing our school or accommodation on different websites, translating documents, distributing leaflets, creating flyers, writing and researching content for our magazine.
As a ‘volunteer’, interns will not be paid. Above all, candidates should remember that while they are learning linguistic and professional skills, they will be expected to contribute as an employee might.
