Supported Internships

A person we have supported.
Our Supported Internships offer you a unique mix of Grade 1 educational delivery and high quality job coaching within a range of different roles at one of one of our many locations across the UK. We provide internships opportunities in hospitality, retail, manufacturing and horticulture. All our internships are supported by qualified job coaches and offer recognised qualifications on completion. After finishing your internship, we work with you to help you find paid and sustainable employment.
A person on our supported internships programme.
Why start a supported internship with us? Our supported internships offer you: A 12 month training and learning opportunity with 3 months of transitional support at the end of the programme to help you find work. An individualised, personal programme designed to meet your needs and support you through your internship. The opportunity to gain accredited and practical qualifications (Pearson Employability and Skills qualification) so that when you've finished your internship you will feel more confident and better prepared than ever to find work.

Progression in to employment

Managers, job coaches and our clients
The ultimate goal of our Supported Internships is to help you find work. Throughout your time with us our managers and Job Coaches will support you to develop your skills, knowledge and experience giving you an increase in your own confidence and capabilities. Our team will connect you with local employers and facilitate visits, trials and selection to help you transition into employment. A number of our enterprises also create paid opportunities each year for successful candidates in the form of our "Supported Employment" opportunities. The responsibilities within these opportunities require a greater level of independence, although for successful candidates a reduced level of Job Coaching support will still be available where required.
