Supported Internships - Full-time

Supported Learning06

Course outline

The Supported Internship is an exciting opportunity to gain realistic employment and training.

During the course you will enhance your skills and ensure you are ready for the world of work.

You will be supported by dedicated staff who will identify the skills you need to ensure you find the right job opportunities for you with our comprehensive contacts of local employers.

The majority of the programme is dedicated to the workplace. But you will also, have individual tutorials, enhance your maths and English skills and gain an employability qualification to demonstrate you know how to find work and identify the skills you need to progress.

About Supported Internships

The aim of supported internships is to prepare young people with complex needs for paid employment by:

  • supporting them to develop the skills valued by employers
  • enabling them to demonstrate their value in the workplace
  • developing confidence in their own abilities to perform successfully at work.

Whilst the ideal outcome from a supported internship will be the offer of a paid job from an employer, possibly the employer who hosted the intern’s work placement, other outcomes include:

  • building up experience for a CV, demonstrating that the young person has the skills and willingness to work
  • changing the perception of employers about employing people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities
  • changing the perception of the young person’s family that they can work
  • improving skills in English and maths that enable the young person to be better prepared for work, including handling money, interacting with the public, and practising interview skills
  • becoming independent travellers
