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

If your Initial Assessment results are lower than this, you may be suited to a different course, but don't worry, as after your Initial Assessment, we'll always clearly explain all your options.
You will carry out elements to achieve competence in each component of the course. You will be supported to produce a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate your skills and achievements in every area of the programme.

Duncan loves College and he's come on in leaps and bounds this year. I can't praise Dee Edwards at Nottingham College enough for all she's done for Duncan, and the support and communication which I need and appreciate.Linda Duncan's mum
