A Supported Internship is a partnership between Wargrave House School and College and host employers. It is tailored to the individual needs of the young person to develop skills in order to gain paid employment.
Supported Internships are programmes that offer people with a learning disability, or difficulty aged 16-24 years old, the opportunity to get practical work-based learning experience providing a smooth transition from education to paid employment.
Supported Internships offer a range of benefits, helping people with learning disabilities or difficulties to raise their aspirations, build skills and confidence, gain a better understanding of employment, show employers what they can do and progress towards paid work.
All applicants must have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) or apply for one in order to attend at this level between Entry 2 – Level 2. Applicants should be capable of completing a successful work experience placement. Applicants should be motivated to want to exit education and enter paid employment at the end of the course.
Students would progress into employment.
If not further study and voluntary work would be appropriate.
