Supported internships

Course Information

The Supported Internship programme is designed to enable young people with special educational needs to achieve sustainable employment with a local employer.

The course focuses on equipping learners with transferable independent and work based skills, to help secure an offer of employment upon completion of the course.

Learners will create a vocational profile, based upon their skills, interests and long term goals, to help match them with a local employer.

We have a wide and varied employer database, which includes work placements in the following areas:

  • Retail Farm/Horticulture
  • Manufacturing
  • Hospitality
  • Catering
  • Media

Learners will need to be committed to learning about and complying with workplace conditions such as time keeping, attendance, dress codes, behaviour and Health and Safety, in order to achieve a successful outcome on this course


We offer a wide range of options and activities. Our aim is to get everyone ready for the next step in life, whether this is independent, supported or unsupported employment.

Learners will study Numeracy and Literacy and achieve qualifications with an appropriate awarding body.
