Applications open for the 2024 Step Programme

Mon, 11 Dec 2023

Applications have opened for the 2024 Step Programme, inviting local organisations and undergraduates to apply to complete paid project-based placements over the summer.

The project will run from July 1 until August 23, with the final being held on August 30.

Businesses, local authorities, the public sector and third sector organisations can all apply for the programme.

The Step Programme, run by the Department for Enterprise, aims to facilitate meaningful placement opportunities for undergraduates with various Government Departments, Local Authorities, local businesses and charities. 

Undergraduate students in their second or penultimate year are invited to apply to complete project-based placements with tangible outcomes for local organisations over an eight week period during July and August, with the chance to win prizes at the 2024 Step Final in September.

The 2023 programme resulted in 28 project-based placements, 12 of which were based within the private sector, resulting in two job offers made by the end of the Step final in September.

Applications close on May 31; to find out more about the programme click here.
