John Smith Centre launch minority ethnic emerging leaders programme

Our John Smith Centre has launched their Minority Ethnic Emerging Leaders programme, a fantastic professional and personal development opportunity for minority ethnic people between 18 and 29 across Scotland. 

Funded by the Scottish Government, the programme will provide young people with a part-time paid internship for nine months with a public/voluntary sector organisation, an NGO, or with a politician. 

Participants will develop a range of workplace skills along with a national living wage equivalent grant, a mentor, and access to networking and employability opportunities. 

Organisations taking part in the programme include the Scottish Government, Shelter Scotland, Save the Children, and Unicef. 

Applicants must:

  • Come from a minority ethnic background
  • Be between the ages of 18-29 at the closing date for applications (19 July 2021)
  • Have an SQA National level 5 (or equivalent) in English
  • Be resident in Scotland for the full duration of the Programme (September 2021 – November 2022)
  • Have the right to live and work in the UK

Applications close on 19 July 2021. Visit the John Smith Centre website for further information or email johnsmith-meelp@glasgow.ac.uk
