The data above on JobBridge finishers to-date is as provided by their Host Organisations. This figure of 1,674 is the gap between starts to-date (5,965) and those currently on internships (4,291). • • Data is based on Host Organisation providing 'Reason for Termination of Internship' at the end of the Internship. Data is based at time of termination of the internship as such it does not take account of an intern who may have secured employment a week or a month after the internship ended. A significant amount of companies stated 'Other'. We are reviewing increasing the number of options available to companies to breakdown responses further. Notwithstanding the above, the data indicates that 243 (216 + 27) interns were immediately offered employment with their Host Organisation and a further 314 Interns immediately secured employment with other companies. This represents a total of 557 interns who secured employment (33% of finishers) immediately on conclusion of their internship. Given the early stage of the Scheme (and this data) and the fact that no full 9 month internships have yet been completed, these figures may well understate the potential numbers moving into employment as the Scheme moves forward. The Evaluation Process will commence shortly and this will analyse more comprehensively the numbers of interns progressing into employment both at the immediate conclusion of their Internship and shortly thereafter.
