Kick-start your career with Burnley College

Burnley College’s hugely successful Internship programme is designed to equip College leavers, current university students and recent graduates with the skills and experience they need to make the first step into their dream career.


Burnley College provides first-class Further Education, University Education, Apprenticeship, business training and adult learning programmes in the heart of Pennine Lancashire.


We are one of Burnley’s largest employers, providing an environment where staff genuinely do value one another and speak passionately about the College, where expectations of all are high and where support and development opportunities are immense.


The Internship placement will last for a period of twelve months and provides the opportunity to work in one of a huge range of support areas across Burnley College and Fitness Evolution.


The temporary nature of the Internship will make it ideal for those who are looking for a sandwich placement as part of their studies, particularly if their programme is geared towards working in a corporate environment. An Internship at Burnley College would also be perfect for those who have recently completed their College or University studies and are looking to gain some experience before progressing on to university or full-time work. 


Interns from our previous programmes have gone on to secure full-time work in a variety of roles across the country, or have returned to full-time study following the completion of their Internship.



“I feel as though my time at Burnley College has not only developed my skills professionally but it has developed me as a person and allowed me to recognise my own abilities. With every day being varied, you are made to feel a part of the team and your contributions are as valued as a permanent member of staff.”Gabriella Shaw, former Intern at Burnley College.


“I came to Burnley College fresh from university with a degree in international politics, and eight months later I left to take on the role of Marketing Executive for Duchy College in Cornwall.  Working at Burnley College has given me the skills, experience and confidence to secure my dream job in my dream location.”Rachael Adamson, former Intern at Burnley College.


“Working at Burnley College was a fantastic opportunity for me as it gave me the skills, knowledge and experience to achieve high grades and gave me an insight into what it takes to work in the IT industry. I thoroughly enjoyed making new friends and gaining a wide range of experiences from all the staff. I would highly recommend taking an Internship at Burnley College.”Haydn Woodward, former Intern at Burnley College.
