Calling all trainees, and people associated with the progress of trainees through the Scheme

 
These web pages are primarily a resource and information hub for you to regularly use whilst involved in the Scheme.  For you to get the most out of the site, we want to make the pages as interesting, relevant and informative as possible.  And this is where we ask for your input.

News from around the Scheme

By 'news' we mean anything which you think might be of interest to others visiting the site, and it doesn't have to be related to the Scheme.  It could be an amazing personal achievement, or a particularly innovative project you or your trainees have been involved in, or an award won.  Go on, blow your own trumpets.  The site is an excellent vehicle for sharing your success with the wider Graduate Scheme community, and beyond.

Images

Profiles

gmtsprofiles.jpgTrying to grasp what is involved in a particular role or activity can be hard if you've never done it before. Profiles can be a great way of explaining about a personal experience you've had on the Scheme.  We would like contributions from people in all of the Scheme's roles: trainees, Scheme staff, placement managers, host organisations etc , and talking about a whole range of subjects.  Pick a theme!

A few profile themes to choose from:

  • What were your first few months like on the Scheme, including the orientation process?
    • How did you find being a buddy for another trainee?
    • Preparing for your first placement - how did you do it, how long did it take, when should you start preparing ... etc?
    • Action learning sets - what on earth happens in one of those?
    • What's it like being a Placement Manager - what is the time commitment?
    • How do you start thinking about life after the Scheme - job hunting etc?
    • What was the process you went through to become a host organisation for the scheme?
    • A week in the life of a Graduate Scheme area manager

The list is endless, but hopefully these examples give you the general idea.

How to get involved 

Please volunteer to be one of our contributors.  All you need to do is email us  in the first instance, and we will get in touch with you.  The time commitment is minimal, but the impact on the web pages will be great!  We look forward to hearing from you.
