A Supported Internship is a study programme aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and want to move into employment but need some extra support. An internship usually lasts for a year, with the opportunity to complete three different placements.
Supported Internships give young people an opportunity to take their first steps into the world of employment, build skills in the workplace, gain qualifications, and get a paid job. The internships offer a unique mix of education and job coaching in a range of different roles, including:
- Customer Service
- Concierge (Hotel)
- Transport (TFL)
NEW FOR 2022!
Shaw Trust and Transport for London (TfL) will be supporting 24 young people into employment. Over the course of 12 months, each intern will complete a mixture of three virtual and face-to-face placements, with the support of a tutor, job coach, and TFL.
