Supported Internship opportunities for those with EHCP

A supported internship offers 16 to 24-year-olds with an education health care plan (EHCP) the opportunity to work towards an accredited qualification(s) and take part in a work placement opportunity with the support from an expert job coach. This study programme can last between six months to a year, depending on the individual's progress and future plans.

Here in Plymouth, work is being done to grow the number of Supported Internships, and this September Discovery College is launching a programme focused on jobs in the sport and leisure industry.

Interested? Alongside time in college, the work placement aspect could involve working at a pool, a spa, gym, sports hall, on a tennis court, or even is a customer service role. Wherever the experience is gained, this internship will equip participants with the skills and experience needed for a range of jobs within the sector - and look great on a CV.

There's still time to get started THIS MONTH, so if you have any questions or would like to find out more about this programme, please email Kirsten at or call 01752 761011.
