ScotGrad offers a range of paid project-based summer placements for students.
Placement opportunities are available with organisations across Scotland, providing students with a well-defined project. Placements provide valuable work experience whilst delivering tangible outcomes and making a real impact on the business.
Highlands and Islands Student Placement Programme
In the Highlands and Islands, ScotGrad delivers the Student Placement Programme on behalf of Highlands and Islands Enterprise. This programme offers paid placements in the Highlands and Islands to students who wish to gain experience over the summer (up to 12 weeks) and has now expanded to include digital technology work based placements, where there may be the opportunity to undertake an up-to-22 week placement on a pro-rata basis during the academic year.
Student placements with a focus on languages are also available in the Highlands and Islands. These paid placements focus on maximising languages as an economic asset for the host organisation.
Summer opportunities take place between June and September each year.
When you are successfully placed on a placement over the summer you will attend a two day ScotGrad Residential Training Course free of charge to enhance your business skills.
