Spotlight on Supported Internships
A webinar for parents and carers of young people preparing for adult life
Thursday 18 May, 10.30am-12noon
Join us to learn more about supported internships and how they can benefit your child/young person.
During this webinar, we’ll hear personal experiences from past supported interns and employers, and see how they benefited from the internship.
We’ll also hear from a Government representative explaining what the government are doing through investments to support more young people with SEND into work.
Supported internships are study programmes for 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.
This free webinar is particularly designed for all parents (including foster and adoptive parents) and representatives from parent carer forums.
It is organised by the national Internships Work programme, funded by the Department of Education, in partnership with the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) and Family Fund.
