Are you looking to move into employment but don’t know where to start? Do you need extra support to help you achieve your goals? Welcome to Supported Internships!
This course will help you develop your personal, social and in particular your employability skills to help you make a successful progression into paid or voluntary employment.
Our programme will help you develop a range of employability skills such as CV writing, completing application forms, interview skills, health and safety, work schedules, communicating with work colleagues and your rights and responsibilities in the workplace.
Through a variety of innovative and engaging learning processes with a strong emphasis on the world of work you will improve your confidence ready to take up employment.
The main qualification is two days a week in college including a day studying Functional Skills in Maths and English and up to three days per week working with an employer. We will guide you through the application and interview process. You will have a job coach to help with travel training if required and support you in the workplace.
You will need to be aged 16-24 and not in education, training or employment to enrol onto the programme. You will need to have the academic skills necessary to complete a level one programme.
The main requirement, however, is a readiness on your part to take up employment opportunities that may be offered to you and for you to be committed to becoming a successful employee.
How will I be assessed?
You will work with your tutor to set your own targets. Your main qualification aim will be achieved through the completion of a portfolio of evidence and regular reviews with your employer in the work place.
