A supported internship is the first step on the job ladder for many young people with special educational needs. It’s an opportunity for employers to take on a young person who otherwise may have had limited prospects of working, and offer them a fully supported experience of the working world. Each intern will spend three days per week in the workplace and one at college, working on CV writing, interviews and employability skills. They will have a job coach provided for the year long placement, who will support them with day to day tasks until the intern is confident in their role, and ultimately in a position when they could be offered paid employment.
