Icon Launches New Internship Scheme

This month, the Institute of Conservation (Icon) announced the launch of its updated Icon Internship Programme (IIP).

Their new programme follows in the footsteps of their Heritage Lottery funded work-based training bursary scheme. Over the last 9 years, the scheme has placed 101 non-conservation and conservation trained interns with a variety of hosts across a range of disciplines. Today, over 90% of those former interns are now employed or pursuing further training within the Cultural Heritage Sector.

Alongside this scheme Icon has also worked with other grant making bodies and partner employers to provide a further 45 work based training placements. 
With the completion of the HLF funded programme, Icon plans to deliver a legacy internship programme and continue to develop new entrants into the conservation profession.
