Inclusion Update - Supported Internships

A supported internship might be the solution!

Supported Internships are work-based learning placements within mainstream employment settings, facilitated by the support of a job coach. Supported interns are enrolled and supported by a learning provider but spend most of their time in a workplace. The internships provide the opportunity for young people to achieve sustained, paid employment by equipping them with the skills they need for work, through learning in a workplace. The aim is to secure a job at the end of the placement, alongside building confidence, increasing health and well-being and gaining friendships and social skills. Across North Yorkshire there are currently 8 education providers who run supported internship programmes. For more information about making the jump to a supported internship please contact your caseworker or visit the websites below.
