Student & Work Placement Opportunities:

We offer a limited number of University or Post Grad student placement opportunities in partnership with regional universities. We are particularly interested in BME students who are multi-lingual and are studying law, social work or other subjects relevant to community development work.

The Angelou Centre does not fund any student placements and this would have to be agreed with your place of learning.
