For Supported Internships a young person must have an active EHCP.


Most study programmes are for one year but there is flexibility. All study programmes commence in September. We do not usually take referrals in year, but this can be discussed in certain circumstances.

Supported Internships are for one academic year.


The recruitment process for Internships is robust and a young person will be at the end of their post 16 journey and wanting to progress into employment.
