First Peterhouse Politics Society Talk of Term

This Thursday, 23rd October, is exciting for many reasons - not least because it is the Oban North and Lorn by-election - but chiefly because it marks the first event of this year's Peterhouse Politics Society calendar.

The title is "What future for the EU and the UK?", and we have an impressive double billing of Andrew Duff, prominent former MEP, and Olivier Evans, an old Petraean who worked with the Foreign Office on and in Europe.

The talk will begin after 20.30 in the Parlour on G staircase. As ever there will be free wine and refreshments.

Charity Apprentice Volunteering Opportunity

Make Changing the World Your Day Job.

Do you want a worthwhile career in charity? Not sure how to set yourself apart from other candidates wanting the same? Become a Charity Apprentice.

Go off the beaten career path and explore a career in charity. Charity Apprentice will give you the skills, knowledge and experience you need to prove you can hit the ground running in a fast-paced creative charity workplace.

How does international development work? Is foreign aid working? What do professional fundraisers do? Why do charities use chuggers? If you?re curious about these questions, take on Charity Apprentice and find out the answers.

Charity Apprentice is about getting out in the field, learning as you go. All year you?ll be learning the job by living it, and you?ll get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel to Africa and meet the children you?ve been working to help. Because we know you can?t find out what it feels like to have a global impact on people?s lives just sitting at home on your laptop.

Make your spare time mean something. If making someone?s life better puts a smile on your face as well as theirs, Charity Apprentice is for you. Because for a Charity Apprentice, satisfaction in a job well done doesn?t just mean an impressive graph or more cash for rich shareholders. It means at the close of each day, every day, you know that the world is a better place because you?re in it.

Our apprentices graduate with:

The skills you need
A whole new perspective
A network of contacts
The 'experience' everyone asks for

Charity Apprentice will take maybe 20 hours of your spare time a month. At the end of each month you?ll have found new ways to inspire and entertain your friends, and fed children in Kenya. If you spent that amount of time on Netflix, you?d still only be halfway through watching Breaking Bad. Just saying.

Charity Apprentice: Because if you want to live a life that makes you leap out of bed in the morning, you need to get out there and make that happen.
