Interns Taking Up One to One IT Training Opportunities

BHT Intern Programme offers one to one IT training to Interns.

For the majority of our Interns on placement the skill set that they are most worried about is IT skills. There is recognition that developing good IT skills is essential for increasing employability but for many the opportunity to address this has been lacking.

Although all of our current Interns have previously used the internet, texting and email over 50% rated their IT skills as either very poor or basic.

An increasing number are taking up the offer of one to one support and training from BHT’s Intern Co-ordinator, with over 20 sessions provided so far.

The programme offers tailored IT training covering Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Powerpoint and Publisher as well as e-zines and social media tools, and using the Internet for job searches.
