Supported Internships are for students who are workready or have completed a number of years' study within our department. We will do our best to match a placement to the area of work that students are interested in.

Students will attend a workplace 2-5 days a week and spend 1 day in college (if appropriate). You will either be placed in a large organisation or on individual placements. Students will receive travel, training, job coach support, English and maths tutorials and develop work skills through sessions at college.

Duration 1 year
Study mode Full Time
Start date 04/09/2018
Campus Joseph Priestley Centre, Beeston
Course code 70804-01
Fee Free - you must have an EHCP to do a Supported Internship

What you learn

Course themes:

• 2-4 days per week work placement in a real business

• Improve confidence in an organisation

• Develop work based skills which secure a positive destination into part-time or full-time employment

• Support is provided through a job coach

Benefits / Skills you will develop

Students will develop the skills they need to secure a positive destination into employment. 

Our team will work with employers to help them identify Entry Level roles within their organisation. They will then assist in Job Carving to create new roles that allow highly skilled staff to focus on their jobs and create new opportunities for our learners.

Students who complete an Internship will have gained the necessary experience and skills to increase their potential of gaining longer term employment either through the employer or because their CV will demonstrate their abilities within the workplace.

How you will be assessed

Students personal targets are taken from their Education Health and Care Plans. These outcomes will shape their curriculum and help the College to build up a set of targets that are then assessed within the workplace setting. Any skills or knowledge gaps will then be addressed through practical or taught sessions. 

Where is the course delivered (facilities / classrooms)

The courses are mainly delivered in the workplace. Students will need to have a clear idea of which area of work they are interested in.

We currently have learners in the following settings; Prince Henry High School. Roseville Nursery, Holiday Inn, Leeds Bus Station, Vine gardening and Catering, A Front Room restaurant (Roundhay Road) Leeds City Council Administration Offices, the Co-Op and National Express.

Entry requirements

The college will work with individuals, families and other professionals to devise a programme of learning appropriate to individual needs and aspiration which is likely to focus on the development of skills which enable employability skills which lead to meaningful employment.

There are no entry requirements but students must be work ready and able to undertake work whilst representing the College.

What's next

Students will progress on to Employment. Some students may need additional study before they are ready for work.

Students will also be offered the opportunity to develop interests in new activities and create a timetable of activity that is sustainable outside of the College.
