The Claremont Academy offers all kinds of exciting opportunities to young people from all backgrounds, ranging from short-term work experience, to summer placements, gap year opportunities, internships and permanent positions.
We offer a range of exciting opportunities to young people from all backgrounds, ranging from:
Short term work experience
Gap year opportunities
We welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of disciplines. Some areas are particularly suited to those whose studies involve specialist skills, whereas others are available to those with more general skills.
We recognise the importance of addressing the existing lack of diversity in the Interior Design Industry and as a result we have created a scholarship for students from a Black & Ethnic Minority groups to support their journey in to a career in the design industry.
The scholarship provides an award of £1,500 a year for 2 years, plus a paid work placement (subject to continued good academic achievement).
During your placement at Claremont, you will be assigned a mentor who will be one of our young designers, who can support and guide you during your studies and work experience.
Paid work Placement can be taken during your:
Summer break between year 2 and 3 of your degree
Year three as a sandwich year
Aligned with the Ahead Partnership, we’ve developed a programme of work to help support young people across the UK in developing their career aspirations and skills. We help reach children at an early stage – the Claremont Interior Design Challenge is aimed at year 5 and 6 pupils, giving them insight in the real world of work. Early interventions such as this really help broaden young aspirations and horizons.
Over the course of a day, a classroom of 30 Year 5/6 pupils work in teams in a creative and interactive challenge to design an office interior to a given brief. Facilitated by Ahead Partnership and using bespoke, age-appropriate resources, pupils will learn about the importance of workplace design on employee wellbeing and motivation, branding and design.
The sessions are delivered free of charge to primary schools local to our projects. Priority is given to schools in areas affected by social and economic disadvantage.
These sessions aim to:
Develop key skills such as leadership, confidence, communication and problem-solving in pupils
Raise aspirations, awareness and knowledge of a range of jobs and careers
Make links between curriculum and real life, including the world of work
