Supported Internships

A Supported Internship gives a young person with additional needs the support they need to enter the world of work. It offers them the opportunity to gain vital work experience, to learn new skills and to increase their confidence.

Rutland County Council is working in partnership with colleges and local employers to support Rutland Young People with an Education, Health and Care Plan into Supported Internships.

Information for young people

  • Would you like to get a paid job in the future?
  • Are you aged between 16 and 24?
  • Do you have an Education, Health and Care Plan?

If the answer to these questions is YES, then a Supported Internship could be just the opportunity you’re looking for.

  • A Supported Internship is a learning programme based at a workplace. You will learn about work by being in work.
  • You will gain confidence and learn new skills.
  • You will have a Job Coach to support you.
  • You will spend about 12 hours a week at work.
  • You will spend 1 day a week in college improving your Maths, English and Employability skills.
  • You will gain skills and experience which will help you into paid employment.
