Call to businesses to help shape supported internship future
The recently launched ‘Supported Internships’ project is hosting a one-hour webinar on Friday 24th March at 9.30am to talk through the processes involved. We would like to gain your views to help shape our future offer, get some practical insight and outline the benefits for your business of an inclusive workforce.
The project hopes to:
- increase the number of community-based supported internships for young people with an EHCP
- implement an infrastructure (through new guidance) of standardisation and consistency, to support sustainable supported internships
- undertake consultation and engagement with stakeholders to gain experiences and suggestions for future recommendations
- support the increase employed young people following a supported internship
We are hoping to have key speakers from the DfE and to hear the experiences from young people and businesses currently hosting supported internships.
