We aim to give you the opportunity to gain the experience, skills and qualifications valued by employers. At the end of our Supported Internship programme, there may also be opportunities for you to find paid employment. You may also continue to receive support from a job coach through the Access to Work fund. You can talk more about this with your experienced Job Coach when you enrol on the programme.
