Grad­u­ate gains work ex­pe­ri­ence

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Homes -

A UNI­VER­SITY grad­u­ate is get­ting ex­pe­ri­ence of the work done at Folke­stone’s Creative Foun­da­tion.

The char­ity has taken on Gre­gory Mutyam­bizi un­der the Busi­ness First place­ment scheme, which matches grad­u­ates with Kent’s small and medium-sized busi­nesses.

The scheme re­ceives fund­ing from the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Fund­ing Coun­cil for Eng­land.

It is run by Can­ter­bury Christ Church Uni­ver­sity, with the Uni­ver­si­ties of Kent, Green­wich and the Creative Arts, and en­ables busi­nesses and char­i­ties to pro­vide place­ments to grad­u­ates at no cost.

Olivia Wilkes, from the Creative Foun­da­tion, said: “It seemed like a great way of giv­ing grad­u­ates an op­por­tu­nity to gain valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Gre­gory, a Christ Church grad­u­ate, said: “The scheme has helped me gain work ex­pe­ri­ence, at a time when grad­u­ates are find­ing it hard to break into the work­place be­cause of the eco­nomic cli­mate.”
