About the course

A Supported Internship is similar to a Traineeship or Apprenticeship but differs in several ways, adjusting to fit the personal needs of each of our students. Learners on a supported internship will be expected to have a higher level of support in the workplace from an Employability Coach, working alongside the staff and Intern in the workplace. Learners still have the opportunity to work towards completing their English and Maths qualifications as well as learning the necessary English and Maths skills for the workplace through a variety of activities and projects.
