Supported internships are based with an employer. They are for young people aged 16-24 with an Education, Health and Care plan. They may help you get a paid job by giving you the skills you need for work. Supported internships are unpaid, and last for a minimum of six months.
You will need to complete a minimum of two work placements whilst you are on programme. You will need to
be able to work from 2 to 4 days a week, for approximately 5 hours a day with a 30-minute lunch break. This is negotiable to meet the needs of the business and you; you will become part of the team and gain valuable skills.
Whilst at work you will be supported by a Supported Employment Officer and/or Tutor who will visit regularly and
who will always be on hand to give you extra support.
You will also be expected to spend time within college, to attend Maths and English lessons, as well as developing your skills for employment. There will be entry requirements for this programme, so we can make sure it’s the right route for you to take.
