Tellus Education Group Ltd is a vocational and adult education training provider and has two schools in the UK and a further three offices in Spain, Italy and Poland. Every year their schools deliver language training and work experience opportunities as part of the ‘Erasmus+ Programme’ which places overseas participants in companies to develop their workplace skills. 

This role is being advertised as part of the STEM Graduates into Business project, a European Regional Development Funded project delivered by the University of Plymouth Careers Service. Its aim is to increase the number of paid internships available to recent graduates with small and medium sized enterprises based in Devon. Funded until spring 2021, the project should produce 80 internships with 80 separate employers across the county. 
By providing support and funding to the SMEs, it is hoped that a cohort of graduate employing SMEs will be created which will continue to employ graduates beyond the life of the project.
