Supported Interns have two days placed with a suitable employer where they are taught carefully and systematically to do the job to a high standard. Learners are fully supported to start and are gradually offered less support so they become more independent. Travel training is also part of the offer.
The course starts with an intensive 6 week employability skills programme and a vocational profiling so that suitable employers can be considered for placements.
Young people will also get the chance to take a City & Guilds qualification in maths and English or a functional skills or GCSE depending on their ability and current qualifications on entry.

Young people need to have completed a Supported Learning programme or a programme at entry 1 through the college mainstream departments. Applicants that have not completed a suitable programme will require a reference that outlines their maturity and social confidence to work with our partner employers.
In addition to the entry qualifications listed, the offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process. Please note that entry criteria may vary quite significantly between courses at the same level. This is to take account of the specific skills needed for success on particular courses, the length of the course and the requirements for progression to the next level. Entry criteria are given as a guide, and the exact requirements in order to obtain a place on a particular course will be confirmed following attendance at a Welcome Event/Interview.
