Supported internships

Supported internships provide employers with an opportunity to see how disabled young people can benefit their businesses. This is a study programme for students aged 16 to 24 with complex learning difficulties or disabilities who need extra support to move into employment.

The student will be based primarily with the employer and both will be supported by an expert job coach.
