Graduate Training Programmes
Graduate training programmes are structured training schemes for graduates usually run by large companies.
Graduate schemes and graduate training programmes are offered by many large companies and usually last between one and two years.
Grad schemes differ from 'graduate jobs' because they have structured training similar to an internship, this often involves work in a number of different departments. Graduate jobs tend to just be jobs that are aimed at recent graduates, and won't always involve training.
