Our internship programme is an integral part of the Younger Leadership College, as it provides a great training ground for leaders looking to develop their skills and experience through a fantastic year in Nottingham, one of the UK’s youngest and most vibrant cities.

Applications for our internship programme for 2018/19 are now open!

See the bottom of the page for more details

This Diocesan programme involves high quality training and development, great opportunities to serve and lead within the College alongside a dynamic placement experience within the Diocese family – this could be in a church or a school, or in a wider range of Chaplaincy settings in prison, hospital, sports etc.

As part of the programme, we host a weekly teaching morning, running from 9.30-12.30 at Café Sobar in central Nottingham, where we focus on a range of teaching modules focused on:

  • Leadership
  • Discipleship
  • Character
  • Culture

This training is a great opportunity for others to get involved in the life of the College (even if you’re not an intern – yet!) – if you’re interested in finding out more, contact us at
