Supported Internships

The Supported Internships course is a one year study programme for learners aged 18-24 years based at a local employer premises. The aim of the course is to give Learners the skills for independence and employment.

The Supported Internship programme is  designed to enable young people with special educational needs and disabilities to achieve sustainable employment by equipping them with the skills they need for work through learning in the workplace.
