Supported internship programme
A supported internship programme is a work-based learning programme for 16 to 25-year-olds with an Education, Health, and Care Plan (EHCP).
Starting in September 2023, young people will complete 3 work rotations throughout an academic year with support from a job coach, who will then support their transition into paid employment.
Job coaches and a qualified teacher will be on-site to meet the educational and training needs of the interns. As a result, interns acquire competitive, marketable, and transferable skills to move into paid employment.
