Supported Internships

This course is specifically designed for students with learning disabilities, assisting them to achieve their full potential and learn the skills needed to get sustainable employment.

Discover Supported Internships: Your Path to a Sustainable Career

A Supported Internship is a full-time course teaching essential career skills alongside boosting your English and Maths skills to the required level. 

You will learn by being in the workplace, where you will be matched with a local placement aligned with your goals, skills, and interests. 

Our aim is to support students to learn the skills to manage personal challenges and to enable students to have greater independence in their learning and personal lives.

My Placement

Interns will learn about employment by spending time in a work placement.  

Your placement will align with your career goals, skills, and interests. 

Placement hours will change dependent on the business need as well as your capability. 

Job Coach

A job coach is there to guide you in your work placement. Whether you need help learning a new bus route to get you to placement, breaking down tasks, learning a new skill or working confidently with colleagues, you can rely on your allocated job coach to help you with what you need to succeed in your placement. 

Getting you Work Ready

The aim of a Supported Internship is to help you to progress in paid employment.  

 This course will develop your independence using English and Maths skills. 

English and Maths

Supported Interns attend College one day a week to gain qualifications up to Level 2 in English and Maths. 

 If you already hold a Level 2 or GCSE grade 4 or higher, you will still need to attend lessons to maintain your skills.
