Students Gain work experience with our partner Companies


The partnership aspect of the externship allows us to get fresh feedback, regularly liaise with the Paragon One team and monitor students' progress. So we can reach out to them if they’re facing challenges and we know what support they need.

Working through Paragon One for my externship with CER enabled me to develop my ideas in an environment that offers valuable feedback and promotes constant learning. This helped me to creatively present my best work to CER, and ultimately land a fall internship with them.
