We run two Supported Internships for young people looking to gain the skills to achieve employment.
A Supported Internship will help you to gain employability skills and become more confident when applying for a job. You will receive support from staff, mentors and job coaches.
The courses offer three job rotations in different departments as well as opportunities to gain Employability Skills qualifications.
- Aged 17 to 24 years old
- Hold an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
We offer Supported Internships in Sutton and Hillingdon, see below for more information on each of them:
This course is in partnership with London Borough of Sutton (LBS) and offers job rotations within the LBS departments and at Orchard Hill College.
This is a one year course, full time Monday to Friday.
We have partnered with Hillingdon Council and DFN Project SEARCH to host a Transition to Work programme.
During this one year programme, you’ll be based at the Civic Centre in Uxbridge gaining a range of transferable and marketable job skills such as team-working and problem-solving. With 800 hours of structured support from staff, mentors, instructors and coaches, you’ll become more confident when applying for a job. The DFN Project SEARCH programme has seen 60% of graduates securing a paid job (16 hours or more per week).
The programme is in partnership with Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support (HACS), experts in supporting people with learning disabilities and autism.
