Apprentice Entrepreneurs


Irish Education Partners, educational travel specialists since 1989, has developed an innovative internship program, which allows Irish graduates and job seekers to gain work experience in the UK, in a high-energy four week program.

All transport, accommodation and training costs are covered by EU funding.

Successful applicants will join other prospective entrepreneurs from across Europe, in an enterprise hub environment, assisting client organisations with marketing, management, financial and technological challenges.

Client organisations are all social entreprises, local and international organisations improving society, the environment, defending human or animal rights and making positive impact on the world we live in.
