Capital Market Communications Limited (“Camarco”), the sector focused financial and corporate communications consultancy, is pleased to announce its partnership with the educational charity, ARK Schools to offer internships to sixth form students studying at ARK Burlington Danes Academy in West London. The first internship will begin this summer.
ARK Burlington Danes Academy is a Church of England non-selective, co-educational secondary school within the English academy programme, located in White City, London and is an ARK school. ARK is an education charity with a network of schools comprising both newstart and transition schools. ARK’s aim is to create outstanding schools that give every ARK pupil the opportunity to go to university or pursue the career of their choice.
Laura Stone, Assistant Principal of ARK Burlington Danes Academy said:
“We’re delighted that Camarco is providing our students with an insight into the world of work. This is an important part of any young adult’s education.”
Lord Stanley Fink, Chairman of Governors of ARK Burlington Danes Academy said:
“If every company in London took the initiative to engage with schools from under-privileged parts of the capital to take on just one summer student as an intern, London would have a better functioning society and economy and those companies would be better placed to engender staff diversity.”
