SEND Supported internships and employment

Supported internships

A type of study programme that can help young people aged 16 to 24 with complex learning difficulties or disabilities to get a job. What makes them different is that most of the learning is done at work and some in college. This means young people can learn on the job.

Supported employment

With supported employment you will have support from a job coach who helps you learn the skills for a job. It also offers you the time in order to learn how to do the job you would like to do. You can find out more about Supported Employment from the Disability Employment Adviser.
