Supported internships are a type of study programme that can help young people aged 16 to 24 with complex learning difficulties or disabilities to get a job. Take a look at this easy-read guide to supported internships.

With supported employment you will have support from a job coach who helps you learn the skills for a job. You can find out more about Supported Employment from your Disability Employment Adviser.

Find out more about the support available for young people with SEND to access Apprenticeships.

You might be able to get help with travel costs or a free recycled bike through the Travel Choices scheme.
