Supported Internships Employers

We believe that all young people should be supported to develop skills and experience and achieve the qualifications they need to succeed in their chosen careers.

This is a government initiative, work-based study programme, that is aimed at supporting young people with an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) into employment. The Internship will be 2-3 days a week over a minimum of 3 to 6 months, depending on the needs of your business. We will provide support from our team to support the learner and the business to create a positive working relationship.

What support will be provided?

  • Trained Job Coaches to support you, your staff, and the learner.
  • An agreed learning plan for the intern, accessible by the employer.
  • Guidance on making reasonable adjustments.
  • A named member of staff on the end of the phone throughout the internship.

Work Experience Study Programme

Work experience enables employers to access a pool of enthusiastic learners. It can be over a period of several weeks, depending on the needs of the business. With full support provided by our team, work experience breaks down barriers to train and support young people and develop a diverse workplace.

A Great Opportunity for your business

It’s not just work experience; It’s building life skills.

What job roles are we looking for:

Examples, but not limited to:

  • IT Support
  • Administration/Office-based
  • Retail/Customer Service
  • Ground and Property Maintenance
  • Health and Social Care
  • Animal Management
  • Catering
  • Hairdressing
  • Childcare
  • Warehouse/Packing/Sorting
  • Construction
  • Motor Vehicle

The benefits to the employer:

At no cost to your business; creating a positive diverse work culture.

Employing a learner:

Whilst we hope that you will not want to let the learner go at the end of their placement, there is no commitment to offer ongoing employment.

A dedicated job coach will work with you and the student, learning the job role. If your business would be interested in taking on a young person, please contact us.
