The South African-wing of the Worldwide Fund for Nature says its Graduate Internship Programme helps address the skills-shortage experienced in South Africa’s conservation and environmental management sectors.
The programme, launched 10 years ago, provides graduates with practical work experience over a one-year period, helping them gain valuable career-specific, workplace-based training.
Senior Manager: Environmental Leaders Programme at WWF-SA, Glenda Raven, says up to 82 percent of trainees find full-time employment, within 3 months of completing the programme.
Congratulations to our 50 Environmental Leaders Programme Graduate Interns. As we say farewell, we wish them the very best in their environmental careers and hope they will continue to inspire change for people and nature. pic.twitter.com/rCQSF6kUT9
