A supported internship is a workplace based educational programme for young people with an EHCP. It lasts for up to a year and consists of one or more work placements with one or more employers. Interns gain valuable experience in the workplace and can be supported by a job coach to help them learn the job role. Employability and job search skills are also provided. The primary aim of a supported internship is to provide young people with EHCPs the experience and skills they need to help them gain employment.
