Supported internship programmes
Supported internships are year-long study programmes for young people aged 18-24 with learning difficulties or autism. They include classroom and workplace learning, 9am-4pm over 4 or 5 days a week, and are designed to help students find paid employment.
Our DFN Project SEARCH and Internship programmes are designed to teach young people the essential skills they need for paid employment through workplace learning. Alongside their time with the employer, students follow a personalised study programme which includes studying for a qualification and, where appropriate, English and Maths.
