Supported internship questionnaire
Local authorities have recently been funded £9.7m to set up local supported internship forums and train more job coaches. With the Department for Education, we are hoping to gather information about how many supported internships are being delivered, any barriers to delivery, and what more we can do to support their increase. If you deliver supported internships (or are planning to), we would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to fill in the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K3VRHVY
If you work in a local authority or supported employment provider, please would you encourage the education providers you work with to fill in this survey? The more information we receive, the better we can plan future support.
More information on supported internships
If you work in a school or college and would like help sourcing a supported internship placement or other work experience for students with SEND on a study programme, help is available from Mencap’s The Right Place project, funded by DfE.
If you’re interested in finding out more about supported internships, Manchester College have developed a supported internship programme with key partners across the city. These include Pure Innovations Ltd (supported employment provider) Manchester Airport, Salford Quays, Manchester University Hospitals and Manchester City Council. They currently have 54 supported internship placements running, with a recent success rate of over 80% interns going into employment.
The clips below will show you supported internships in action and if you want to find out more about how the college set up their supported internship, please contact Jodie Booth: JBooth@tmc.ac.uk
