Graduate gap year company Raleigh International has
matched government subsidies which will allow some former students
to gain charity work experience in foreign countries.
The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills announced on
Monday (August 3rd) that enough funding for 500 young people to
take up graduate jobs abroad would be provided to the firm, which
has now matched the offer.
According to the Daily Telegraph, 1,000 university leavers will now
be able to take ten-week expeditions to countries like Borneo,
India and Costa Rica, where they will help build new schools and
take part in community projects.
Peter Slowe, founder of Raleigh International, told the newspaper:
"The cost of the trip, normally around £2,000, is met by private
companies after a 30 per cent discount has been applied by Projects
TMP Worldwide recently told Onrec.com that students who are due to
graduate next year should start getting ready for job hunting this
summer so that it is less gruelling after they leave
