Supported internships are a study programme aimed at young people (aged 16-24) with an EHC plan to gain experience in the workplace within a supported environment and provide a platform for the young people to further develop their skills and experience in a structured way.
Learners take part in the programme with one of our partner employers and spend up to 30 hours a week working in different areas to gain valuable experience with the support of an on-site Hereward Job Coach. Interns are onsite at Hereward College one day a week to undertake a City & Guilds qualification in Employability Skills and can take maths and English qualifications suitable to their level.
Hereward’s supported internship programme is open to both external and internal applications. For a September 2018 start, applications open on Friday 1st December and close on Monday 8th January.
