EmployAbility [www.employ-ability.org.uk] is the not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping disabled and dyslexic university students and graduates make the transition from education to employment, and we are also Google’s disability partner across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We support students with all disabilities and long-term health conditions, including dyslexia, dyspraxia, mental health conditions, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome and chronic asthma.

We are pleased to present two new opportunities from Google for disabled and dyslexic students; the BOLD Immersion and STEP Internship programmes.

STEP is a dedicated internship initiative for computer scientists, while BOLD has been developed specifically for those interested in the business side of Google and the technology industry. So whichever degree subject you're studying, we have a Google programme for you!

About The BOLD Programme

When: 25-27 June 2014
Where: Dublin, Ireland*
Who: Bachelors and masters students of any degree discipline, graduating in 2015 or 2016 from a university in Europe, The Middle East or Africa (please note that this programme is not open to Google TechAbility 2013 participants)

Deadline: Thursday 20th March, 2014

*Please note that all reasonable travel, accommodation and meal costs will be covered by Google

The BOLD Immersion programme is designed to provide an exposure to the business side of the digital industry for students who are historically under-represented in this field. Participants will get a rare glimpse into online sales and customer relations, non-technical career opportunities at Google and they will also get the chance to develop valuable professional and peer networks.
