Congratulations to the graduates of this year’s Hackney Council and Homerton Hospital Supported Internship Programmes.
The interns attended and participated in an online Graduation Ceremony joined by their parents, mentors, colleagues, Cllr Williams and Mayor Glanville.
We want to give each intern a huge congratulations on all of their successes, and wish them the very best in their future careers.
With the support from their job coaches, tutors and mentors, graduating interns are now well-equipped with the tools to progress into paid employment.
Applications are now open for the 20/21 programme.
The Parity Project connects Black Men aged 18-30 to corporate careers in Canary Wharf and the City.
In just over a year nearly 100 young men have started internships and permanent employment via training, networking and access to live vacancies.
