Supported Internship

We provide young people a springboard from education into the world of work, the supported internship is bespoke for each intern and is designed to develop transferable skills, knowledge and attitudes in preparation for paid employment.  Through specialist training and direct work placements interns will develop employability skills, self-confidence, job specific skills whilst working alongside employees in a real employment setting.

The structured vocational programme, led by a qualified SEN teacher runs from September to June and is based at Buckinghamshire New University in Aylesbury.  Interns will study a Prince’s Trust Entry 3  – Level 2 Personal Development & Employability qualification. 

We also offer interns the opportunity to study functional maths and English at E3 – L2.  Interns will also undertake a programme of bitesize training such as digital skills, self- management and communication skills delivered by the Job Coaches, Speech & Language therapist and external guest speakers.  These invaluable employment skills enrich the learning experience for each intern.
