Supported Internships Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP)
We are pleased to offer a programme of Supported Internships, specially designed for people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The programme helps to build confidence, gain valuable skills and offers work experience placements.
EHCP Work Experience
The Supported Internship programme is specially designed for people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The programme can last for up to a year and includes work experience with an SEN-friendly employer.
During your work experience, we will provide you with a workplace mentor who will attend work with you. This is to make sure that you are introduced to a work environment that is suitable for you, to make you feel comfortable and to help you understand what you are doing.
We will also help you with travel training, so you can get to the work experience placement.
