Pagoda Projects are exciting to announce the launch of our Remote Internships Programme. Our mission remains focussed on increasing cultural understanding, develop employability skills and help our participants to gain valuable work experience.

For most of us, spending the extra 3-4 hours getting ready for work and using public transport every day can become a slog, taking up a large part of our days, so a remote experience gives the perfect opportunity to stay home and intern from home. The hot topic of ‘remote working’ and the ability to use digital tools effectively is only growing and it is becoming an ever-important skill to have and the online sessions with guest speakers, cultural mentor scheme and online language classes that are on offer during a Pagoda remote programme are allowing us to gain these skills.

If you are unsure if you should do a remote internship or not, have a listen to our partner companies, who explain why remote work experience is just as good as normal work experience!
